Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Ruby red color with garnet hues. On the nose it is complex and seductive offering an explosion of perfumes that go from red fruit, to blackberry and violets followed by elegant balsamic notes and hints of coffee and liquorice. A soft wine, warm and persistent, with silky and well rounded tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard location: on the hills in the municipality of Prepotto. The vines are between 15 and 30 years old. The soil type is the typical "ponca". Yield is about 60 quintals/ha.
Production Notes
After pressing just the best grapes, the must is left to macerate with the skins for about 20 days at controlled temperature. After that the wine is moved into wooden vats where the malolactic fermentation takes place.
Food & Wine Pairing
Perfect with charcuterie and pasta dishes with meat sauce, roasted, grilled and braised meats, seasoned cheeses.
