The wines

CABERNET

Classification: D.O.C. ISONZO

Grapes variety: 100% Cabernet

History: It is a vine originating in the Bordeaux region, and more precisely, the Gironde. It was imported to Friuli at the end of the 1800s and from that time has become widely cultivated.

Tasting notes: Intense red ruby colour tending towards blue, it has a full and fragrant bouquet with a strong herbaceous intensity. Its dry tannic full bodied qualities, are enhanced by its ageing in oak casks, giving elegance to this wine of great character.

Vinification: The grapes were immediately removed from their cluster then poured into stainless steel vats. These were completely re-mixed by way of thrice daily manual re-assemblage. The fermentation, although not controlled mechanically, almost constantly maintained a temperature of 28°C, ideal for the proper colour and tannin content. 10 days later the wine was drawn and pressed. After a month’s ageing in stainless steel vats, the wine was poured into Slavonian oak casks for 10 months of final ageing.

Serving temperature: 18°C.
