The POMEROL of ITALY
Nestled in the Euganean Hills in the Veneto region of Italy, a group of volcanic rolling, cone-shape slopes that rise above the Padovan-Venetian plane, is one of the region’s fastest emerging leaders in top quality wine production – Maeli. The winery is directed by winemaker Elisa Dilavanzo, who has drawn new energy from the support given by Gianluca and Desiderio Bisol. With their vision, Elisa has been encouraged to search for new expressions in Bordeaux grape varietals, that still have so much to reveal. The variety of the land, the steepness of the hills, the varying exposition of the vineyards and the peculiarities of the micro-climate motivate Elisa to continue to explore and research every aspect of winemaking in this unique land.
This very overlooked and underrated region of northern Italy is producing some amazing wines as of late. Bordeaux grapes are thriving here and winemakers are just now understanding their full potential. Prices have not yet begun to rise but with more and more wineries making wines of this high caliber, it’s not hard to see them catch up with the rest of the wine world.
This wine is so delicious and easy to drink that it is a MUST BUY. If you love big full-bodied and plush Bordeaux wines, you will love Infinito. Call it the “Pomerol” of Italy!

On the palate it is rich and potently warm with a perfectly balanced acidity and minerality that conveys the volcanic nuances of the terrain. Sweet and silky tannins with an intense and persistent aftertaste. 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere. Can you say “Pomerol”?
