Owner Fausto Maculan enjoys experimenting with Cabernet and he is an expert in producing sweet wines, so why not combine the two? The first letters of MAculan, DOlce (sweet) and ROsso (red) are combined to form Madoro (Maculan Sweet Red!). It is made with 50% Marzemino and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. After strict bunch selection, the grapes are dried for six weeks before fermenting in stainless steel tanks. The wine is finished in French barriques to add extra complexity.

Tasting Notes

Rich ruby-red in color, this wine boasts vibrant aromas of black raspberries, dark cherries, and sweet spices. On the palate, the Madoro is sweet and full-bodied, with a long, evolving finish that keeps the senses captivated.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs excellently with dark chocolate desserts like dark chocolate soufflé or flourless chocolate cake but also pairs well with dessert cheese platters.
