In Vineyard

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown from our own vineyards in Pramaggiore.  The vineyard is situated 25 – 40 metres above sea level with medium texture and clayey soil.  Sylvoz is the growing method used.

In Cellar

Red vinification of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Fermentation takes place on the skins in steel vats for 8-10 days at a controlled temperature of 24-26 °C. After racking off the wine is placed in concrete vats for 10-12 days, in which malolactic fermentation takes place. It then matures on the fine lees for approximately 6 months before bottling.

In Tasting

The colour is bright, shiny red with purple highlights.  The scent is intense with pleasant hints of fruit and vegetables on a delicately herbaceous background.  The flavour is dry and well structured, extremely fresh with elegant tannins and velvety softness.

Pairings

Adaptable and versatile, this wine is delightful with many different dishes, from typical salamis to highly flavoured first and second meat courses.
