A classic Bordeaux blend. The Merlot and Cabernet vines found in the warm regions around the Caldaro similar climatic conditions as in Bordeaux, its native provenance. The average temperature and the number of hours of sunshine during the vegetation period are absolutely comparable.

In many respects 2021 was a demanding and challenging wine growing year. The winter months were mainly sunny but very cold. In spring the temperature was slow to rise, and that delayed the vegetative development of the vines. This was only partly compensated by the warm and sunny start to the summer, while the weather in July and August was very varied. The grape harvest accordingly began relatively late, on September 9. The wet September was an organizational problem for our wine growers, but ultimately a very good harvest was completed on October 26.

– intense red
– aromas of forest berries and wild cherries, spicey backbone and fresh vegetal notes on the nose
– juicy and full-bodied, with a powerfully elegant structure

This wine is ideal with red meats, game and piquant cheeses.

Fermentation on the skins at 27 °C, with an extended maceration of ten days, malolactic fermentation followed by a 8-month ageing in barrique, big wooden barrels and large casks.

South- and east-facing slopes situated at an altitude between 230 and 350 meters above sea level. Loamy, chalky gravel with a low proportion of sand.
