VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon
GROWING SYSTEM: Guyot and Friuli single inverted
HARVEST PERIOD: September
WINEMAKING: After harvesting the grapes are processed separately.
The Sauvignon is gently pressed to obtain the must followed by
a cold static decantation. Fermentation and aging take place “sur lies” in glass-lined cement tanks under controlled temperature. Differently, the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes after a cold maceration are gently crushed.
The must thus obtained is left to ferment and let to rest in 500 litre oak barrels. After blending them together, the wine is bottled and released after one year and a half after the harvest.
ALCOHOL: 13,00% vol. average
COLOUR: Light cherry pink.
TASTING NOTES: The fresh and fruity bouquet shows notes of red fruits, raspberries and cherries; on the palate, it confirms the freshness and tasty character, a wine of great drinkability.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: 10 – 12 °C
SUGGESTED PAIRING: Excellent as an apéritif or paired with cold cuts and not aged cheeses, also matches well with delicate first courses, fish and white meats. Serve cool.
