||Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, 80% Merlot
||75% of the grapes for this wine were picked at the end of August and laid in wooden boxes for 20-30 days in our new winery, “Ca' del Laito”, situated at 400 metres above sea-level.
||Crushing took place at the end of September at the winery in San Peretto. After 15 days' fermentation in stainless steel the wine was racked at 30 g/l residual sugar. The remaining 25% was crushed immedately after harvest and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
||75% of the grapes: 10 days later it was racked again, off the gross deposit, and transported back to “Ca' del Laito” where it was put into French oak tonneaux and new America barriques. The remaining 25%: in April it was refermented in the ‘ripasso' style for ten days, after which it was racked off the gross lees and carried to “Ca' del Laito” for a passage in new French tonneaux.
||Accompanies first courses with meat, eg Risotto with Tastasal and Pasticcio di lasagne. Red meats and mature cheeses, of course.
