Grape variety: 80 % Merlot, 20 % Cabernet Sauvignon - Alto Adige DOC
Wine-making: The grapes are destemmed, after which the must undergoes a brief maceration period and subsequent fermentation lasting 10 days at 28 °C. During fermentation the skins are kept in continuous contact with the must. Towards the end of the fermentation the temperature is allowed to rise in order to extract the maximum of colour and flavour.
Organoleptic characteristics: This particular wine is very rich and concentrated, full, deep ruby in colour with intense, almost aggressive herbaceous aromas which evolve, mellow and become warm and generous with maturity. They remain intense even after the wine has been in the glass for a considerable time. On the palate it is rich and dry, herbaceous, earthy and long due to its firm, tannic structure, characteristics which will enable this wine to mature magnificently in bottle for at least a year or two, continuing to evolve, mellow and develop complexity.
Goes especially well with: This is a classic red wine to accompany main courses.
Allergic-Info: This wine can contain sulfites
Full, elegant, excellent white wine with acidulous finish.
Fruity, bloomy and wholehearted wine, strongly recalling elder, black currant and green grass.
Light green lustre run through the straw colour of this wine whose aroma is rich in fruits, the most striking of which are pears. An excellent acidity balance gives this wine strength and structure. It is dry and smooth on the palate, and leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste. The Pinot Grigio goes well with many dishes, especially lighter foods, to which it is an excellent accompaniment. It is served chilled and also bestows a fine taste following longer ageing.
Craft high-class ham with juniper crust, cooked, lightly smoked with aromatic juniper taste. Very well suitably as an hors-d'oeuvre or main food.
