The grapes are pressed, then left to macerate on the skins for 8-10 hours at 10°C. During fermentation carried out at controlled temperature for 10-12 days, the must undergoes frequent remontages to favor extraction. After malolactic fermentation, it is transferred to oak barriques where it matures for 6 months before being assembled and bottled.
Ruby-red color, this wine offers intense fruity aromas of wild cherries, vanilla and hints of toasting. A rich, full-bodied wine, round and warm on the palate.
It pairs well with tasty first course dishes of the Veneto such as risotto ai porcini or radicchio, red meats and mature cheeses. To be served at 16°-18°C.
