Denomination: I.G.T (regional geographical indication)
Type of soil: volcanic soil and tufaceous clay
Vine Training System: cordon spur training system
Alcohol content: 12,5%
Origin of the grape variety: Grape variety native of the Bordeaux region of the Médoc, where it is blended with Merlot and Cabernet sauvignon. The very small berries determine a higher proportion of the skin compared to the flesh; this translates into very coloured, structured and tannic wines.
Exclusive Vine-growing Practices: Protect the bunches from the sun avoiding defoliation. Limit nitrogen fertilisations and water availability since the excess vigour leads to a reduced polyphenolic and aromatic synthesis.
Exclusive Oenological Practices: Short maceration period of about 5 days and alcoholic fermentation at a low temperature (22°C). Short but frequent pumping over operations. After the racking, many open-air decanting processes to set the colour and soften the tannic component.
Back label: “A wine of great depth and structure with an intense and deep purple red colour. The tannic freshness is typical of the variety used”.
Olfactory images: Red fruits, blueberry, blackcurrant, cherry, strawberry, violet.
Serving suggestions: Savoury soups, stewed white meat.
Serve at: 14-15°C.
