Cabernet Sauvignon e Cabernet Franc “Carmenere”.
The fields of the Estate, in the municipality of Buttrio (Udine), ideal location for excellent wine making. The C.D.O. (controlled denomination of origin) is Friuli Colli Orientali. The soil is composed of marl and sandstone with a predominantly clayey component. Crop protection is low environmental impact, focussing on traditional product with a short persistence, used according to the agro-alimentary programme for crop protection.
Red wine fermentation, with prolonged maceration of the must and skins in modern steel wine makers at a controlled temperature (26°C) to obtain a well-structured wine. This is followed by pressing and, first completion of alcoholic fermentation and then malolactic fermentation in wooden casks.
In wooden casks. Ageing continues, after bottling, in the 16th Century underground estate cellar.
Deep red, tending towards violet.
Rich and elegant, releases a very mellow red fruit aroma, amalgamated with a pleasant spicy array of flavours.
Pleasantly fruity and accompanied by nuances of toasted wood with soft, yet powerful tannins. Full bodied, rich, balanced, and harmonious. Pleasant and persistent aftertaste.
Roast meats and is recommended with game and wild poultry and with grilled meats and mature cheeses.
Straight away for those looking for the characteristic “Carménère” note or after a couple of years for maximum balance of the two components. This wine can easily exceed six years in the bottle.
Best when the bottle is brought to room temperature (18 °C) before decanting. Let it “breathe” for a few minutes before serving.
