This wine is a "thoroughbred racehorse" from the cellars of Pravis, and is made only in years when the harvest is at its best. It has a really intense, deep colour with an aroma that is immediately involving, with a correctly judged measure of herbs and spices, cedar, wild blackberries and other small mountain fruits. It is full and potent on the palate, with well-amalgamated tannins and a mellow, genuinely pleasant, taste. It's acidity is inviting and it expresses all its structure. It is a burst of sincere satisfaction.

The producer

The grapevines cultivated by Pravis have put down their roots in the prehistory of Trentino, on slopes that are now vineyards, but were once the ancient pathways of prehistoric man, and on fields that allowed the early inhabitants of the Valley of Laghi to reap the riches of the land. Although grapevines are now cultivated according to strict wine-making criteria, Pravis still attempt to do things as simply as possible and obtain wines that really do have their origins in the land. The chosen vineyards, which are owned by the company, are at an altitude of 200 to 700 meters, right on the natural terraces where the modern wine-making traditions of Trentino originate. Nothing here is artificial. The grapes mature with the help of a unique mountain climate. A wind, known locally as "Ora del Garda", and the changing shape of the fields, allow splendid late harvests. It is as if Pravis takes the goodness of the Trentino countryside and puts it in a bottle.

Best with

This wine is excellent with red meat with substantial sauces, meat terrines, game and hard cheeses.

How to serve it

How to keep

This is a wine that is capable of standing the test of time and can be drunk after sevaral years. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
