Production area: Produced with the best Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from our Aria Valentina estate.
Soil characteristics: Alluvial, gravely soil.
Vineyards: The training system used is the Guyot with a density of 4000 plants per hectare.
Vinification: Red vinification. The grapes harvested separately from the last week of September (Merlot) to the first ten days of October (Cabernet) and vinified separately in stainless steel with a contact between skins and must-wine of about 15 days.
Aging: This is followed by malolactic fermentation and 12-14 months of aging in barriques previously used for the ageing of our other red wines. After the bottling it gets aged shortly before it’s marketed.
Color: Intense and luminous ruby red.
Bouquet: Intense notes of blackberry and sour cherry with elegant grass notes and floral hints of red rose and wild violet followed by black pepper, cloves and roasted bell pepper.
Flavour: Recalls the bouquet with a persistent fruity aftertaste. Good body and smooth tannins make it elegant and well balanced.
Pairings: Wine suited to red meat but also perfect with braised veal and pork. Also excellent with medium-aged cheeses or lasagne with Radicchio di Treviso.
