History: A grapevine
of antique Friulan origins already renowned in the 1700s.
Granite red colour tending towards violet, its intense bouquet is
forest-scented with wild blackberry notes. Tasty, lightly tannic
and slightly bitter, it has a pleasant, persistent aftertaste. Young
and vinous, fragrant, lightly herbaceous.
Upon the grapes arrival in the winery they were immediately separated
from the cluster and poured into vats. There were two manual re-assemblages
daily with a complete re-mixing of the grape skins. The fermentation,
although not mechanically controlled, almost always maintained a
temperature of 28°, ideal for proper colour and tannin content.
After 12 days the wine was drawn and pressed. After a month left
in stainless steel vats, the wine was poured into Slavonian oak
casks and aged for 8 months.
