The grapes are hand-harvested between the end of September and the beginning of October, destemmed and allowed to macerate on the skins until completion of fermentation at controlled temperature (22°C). After pressing the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and it is then aged in stainless steel tanks for several months with periodic stirring to keep the thin lees in suspension. After bottling the wine continues its aging for some months before release. It has an intense red clour with lively violet reflexes. The bouquet has a considerable intensity and elegance with suggestions of spices and a pleasant herbaceous aroma. The fresh and tannic palate is sustained by a long finish which recalls the sensations of the bouquet.

The producer

The winery is located in Strassoldo, a striking fortified village from the feudal age between Palmanova and Cervignano. Its head office is located in an historical residence dating back to the eighteenth century, deeply amidst an age-old park crossed by a magnolia path that goes until disappearing in the distance among the vineyards. During the last years a complete reorganization of the whole vineyard area has been carried out using modern training systems. To guarantee a strict control over the whole production process, which is entirely family-managed, every production step takes place rigorously within the estate, from the grape growing to the wine bottling.
