Intense cherry color, the nose starts with hot and spicy notes that open to the finesse, an evident cherry and blackberry fruit, inviting spices and delicious bush flowers; the taste is soft and smooth, defined by blueberries, tobacco and underbrush in a great expression of persistence. The name comes from a steep hill located in Arquà Petrarca. Black, “negro” for the local people, is the vein of basalt which raised the seabed, and so is the surface of red limestone that here is almost burnt by summer sun. In this wonderful Mediterranean site grow 2 hectares of highly concentrated Merlot with a density of 5,000 vines / ha and an average yield of 65 q.li / ha. Ages for at least 18 months in oak barrels from 5 to 30 hl.

The producer

Ca' Lustra is a path in an area that is not famous, nor talked about, but unique for the strong character of its land and for the great natural and historical significance. It is since the late sixties that Ca'Lustra enthusiastically puts every effort into the Euganean viticulture with the objective of quality: a fascinating adventure led by Franco Zanovello both in the vineyards and in the winery with the help of motivated employees. The 25 hectares of vineyards, and other 15 of olive trees, woods and pasture, are all within the Euganean Hills Regional Park, divided into various "cru" with particular soil and climate characteristics. Deep knowledge of the area, never ending study and experimentation, combined with the historical research, are at the root of the winery’s personality.

Best with

Meat dishes and mature cheeses. Ideal with the Paduan hen prepared "in tocio".

How to serve it

Serve at a temperature of 18-20 °C, uncorking the bottle a couple of hours before to enjoy it at its best.

How to keep

Store in a cool, dry and dark place, horizontally laid. Good between 5-8 years, can grow well beyond if stored properly.
