DENOMINATION

DOC Isonzo

TRAINING SYSTEM

TIME OF HARVEST

Second half of September

VINIFICATION

Harvested and selected at peak phenolic and sugar maturation, the grapes are gently destemmed then crushed. This is followed by alcoholic fermentation and maceration of the grapes at a controlled temperature in stainless steel containers for about 20–25 days. After racking, there follows a long period of maturation and refinement where malolactic fermentation takes place and during which the often significant and lush tannins are pleasantly softened. After bottling, the wine rests for further ageing in the bottle before release.

COLOUR

Intense ruby red colour rich in violet hues.

THE TASTING

Immediately very intense and elegant, citrus and fruity notes such as plum, blackberry and blueberry jam blend pleasantly with hints of
white pepper, pomegranate and tobacco. A pleasant aftertaste of coffee and liquorice comes as a result of the maturation.
On the palate, it has great personality and body, being expansive, refined and silky, which confirms the spicy olfactory sensations in its finish.

PAIRINGS

Red meat in general, roasts, game and mature cheese.
