Variety composition: 100% Merlot
Alcoholic strength: 13.5% vol.
Classification: D.O.C. Friuli Colli Orientali.
Soil: marl and sandstone of Eocene origin.
Harvest: first ten days of September, manual in boxes.
Vinification: The de-stemmed and crushed grapes are subjected to maceration on the skins for 15 days and the fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature, accompanied by an adequate number of punching down. The wine obtained undergoes malolactic fermentation in barriques, half of which are new and half of the second passage, where it matures from the end of November for about 12 months. This is followed by the passage in steel and a long period of refinement in the bottle, before being released on the market.
Serving temperature: 16°-18 ° C.
Upon visual examination the sample is clear, with an intense ruby red color with evident garnet textures, consistent.
The nose is intense, of fine quality and with a wide and complex bouquet of scents. It opens with aromas of red flowers reminiscent of violet and peony, followed by hints of small berries such as black currant, cherry, durone and raspberry. There are also hints of freshly mown grass and undergrowth, closing with nuances of oil and ink.
The sip is satisfying, intense, with a well-smoothed and linear tannin. Persistent in taste, it gives an enveloping aftertaste of ripe fruit associated with a note of licorice.
It is recommended in combination with a macaroni pie.
