IGT Venezia Giulia

Red/gray and gravelly soil, rich in minerals and microelements.

Excellent sun exposure, good temperature variations, and a characteristic microclimate that is well-suited to this grape variety.

Grapes are harvested exclusively by hand , stalks are removed and the fruit undergoes approx. 15 days’ fermentation at a temperature of 25° Celsius (77° Fahrenheit). Subsequently, the red wine is aged in barriques and tonneaux, both new and used (maximum 3 year) for about 12-14 months, then blended and left to rest in stainless steel tanks for about a month previous to bottling.

Intense ruby red in color, the bouquet recalls ripe fruit, notably marasca cherry. The palate is flavorful, intense and appealing, with smooth, elegant tannins, well integrated acidity, distinct balance.

Medium-seasoned cheese, barbecued red meat; excellent with meat-based first courses such as fresh tagliatelle pasta with game ragout, or lasagna.
