Powerful example of its variety from an outstanding vintage. This wine is born in the best wine growing area of the Buje region called Contarini-Brazzania where a low yield per hectare allows for the production of extraordinary wines. The vineyards are laid out in an amphitheatre fashion, helping them to ideally utilize the local climate and the mineral-rich white soil.

Vinification and maturation: alcoholic fermentation begins at a temperature of 25-28 ° C, 15 to 20 days. Malolactic fermentation and maturation take place in small oak barrels for 18 months, which favors the pairing of rich and noble aromas of wood and grapes. This is followed by blending and aging the wine in a large barrel for one year, after which it is rounded and matured in the bottle for the next 6 months.

Color is ruby ​​red, slightly more airy, typical of the variety. Smell is densely fruity aromas of raspberry, strawberry and currant then game and leather. The wine is extremely warm, full, round, moderately fresh fruit with currants, strong tannins but finely chopped, still young and lively then later raspberry, and the finale with fine black pepper, dark chocolate.

Gastro recommendation: lamb, red meat from the oven, venison stew with currants, wild duck with red wine sauce.

Deagrassi family started producing wine to meet the needs of a personal catering business, but not long after that, in the early nineties, it evolved into a complete and exclusive dedication to wine. The first bottle to be dressed up in Degrassi winery clothing was released with the 1996 vintage mark on it. Committed from the very beginning to superior quality and the preservation of continuity, Degrassi family creates wines that bring people together, inviting them to share special moments, carried by the simple rituals of easy living. Moreno and his father Nino are respisible for the quality offered for many years now by the brand Deagrassi. Moreno, an aficionado, connoisseur and creator of wines and his father Nino, as well as the entire winery team are working in continuous communication and that is the prerequisite for excellence of this vinery.
