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.
Late harvest. Red wine fermentation with prolonged maceration of the must and skins at a controlled temperature (28 °C) to obtain a well-structured wine, rich in colour and suitable for long ageing periods. This is followed by pressing and completion of the alcoholic fermentation process.
In wooden casks. Ageing continues after bottling in the sixteenth century underground estate cellar.
Red with violet hues, intense and winy when young, changes to a red with brick hues with ageing.
Expansive and pleasant with slightly woody undertones.
A hearty and robust wine, Tazzelenghe softens with the normal maturation processes associated with barrel ageing (oxidation and tannin condensation).
This wine pairs well with the rustic hors d’oeuvres of the local cuisine. It is perfect with roasted meats and game.
Reaches maximum expression of the vine in the first four years and then, under suitable preservation conditions, can exceed ten years in the bottle.
Bring the bottle to room temperature (18 °C) before decanting. Let it “breathe” for a few minutes before serving.
