Moro Polo – DOC Colli Euganei Rosso

Moro Polo – DOC Colli Euganei Rosso

DOC Colli Euganei Rosso Moro Polo is a red wine from the Zanovello Selections created from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet grapes. Each glass is a taste of history, legends, traditions, places and people, characterised by fruit, balance and integrity.
Moro Polo proves to be a surprising and pleasant companion at the table: the Merlot and Cabernet grapes give us a full-bodied wine with an intense ruby red colour, a fresh bouquet and an enveloping, persistent taste.

The proud and forthright character of our wine honours a character dear to us, the Moro Polo, who guarded the vast slopes of Monte Venda as a forester for more than half of the last century.

History of the Moro Polo and the Bordeaux blend
The journey of Merlot and Cabernet began in the Gironde in France and reached Italy in the second half of the 1800s. The round, ripe fruit of Merlot accompanied by the herbaceous notes and more pronounced tannic texture of Cabernet create the renowned ‘Bordolese blend’.
Every name, every label has a meaning for us and their definition becomes a memory in our family collection. For this Bordeaux wine, we decided to make a special dedication to Antonio Lionello, also known as ‘Moro Polo‘. A character closely linked to the land and values of the Euganean Hills, a sworn country guard with an upright and proud soul, capable of cultivating deep friendship and solemn commitment in the community. Moro Polo was chosen as a trusted forester by Count Giusti del Giardino, at the time the owner of vast plots of land on Venda, land that we partly look after today.
