Vite Rossa IGT Veneto
50% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, variable depending on the year.
Vineyards of Campo di Pietra, Piave river basin, to the south east of Treviso.
Hand picked into crates. At different times depending on the variety and the vineyard. Generally from the end of September to the beginning of October.
Destemming and pressing of grapes. Maceration in wooden vats for 16-20 days with daily delestage. When devatted the wine stays in wooden vats for the period of malolactic fermentation and is subsequently placed in barriques.
Intense red in colour, tending towards pomegranate with age. The fragrance is full with notes of red berries, raspberry and blackberry. The aging lends an additional ethereal bouquet of cocoa, coffee and liquorice. The taste is balanced with elegant, unaggressive tannins.
Thanks to its good balance it is ideal with game, roast pig and mature cheeses.
