2016 Reserve Bridge Creek Rondinella Corvina & 2017 Dolce Classico.

Southern Italians

Centennial Vineyards in the NSW Southern Highlands is celebrating the release of the 2016 Reserve Bridge Creek Rondinella Corvina (A$35) and the 2017 Dolce Classico (A$40). The wines were crafted from their vineyard in Orange, NSW – one of only two plantings of rondinella and corvina in Australia. In honour of the grapes' home of Veneto, Italy, the wines were made with the styles of the region in mind. "I was reading a lot about the amarone and ripasso styles of Valpolicella," says winemaker Tony Cosgriff, "and had the opportunity to have a crack at the recioto style in 2017."
