Classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, embellished with our Schioppettino.
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 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.
After a long period of ageing, this wine takes on a brick red colour with “ruby red” hues.
Fine and characteristic aroma with a balanced woody scent. Striking for the warm and concentrated red fruit it releases.
Dry flavour suggests sweet liquorice and jam. Concentrated and powerful yet balanced wine with mature and well blended fragrances. An excellent wine to drink now and one that offers a promising future.
Great wine to accompany game dishes, roasted and braised meats, poultry and hard cheeses.
Reaches maximum expression of the vine in the first four years and then, under suitable preservation conditions, can exceed eight years in the bottle.
Best served at room temperature (18°C)
