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.
