DOC Colli Euganei Cabernet
Carménère was the first grape from Bordeaux to be introduced in Veneto and in the Euganean Hills in the mid-800’s, a long and important history that brings it to be considered the “Italian Franc”.
Few areas are suitable as ours to this rustic grape, which can express here more the spicy notes rather than the herbal ones. Cabernet Sauvignon participates in minor extent to the attractive intensity of this wine that is the backbone of our proposal.
Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon
14 % vol.
In Faedo and Arquà, fairly recent and moderately dense vineyards, Guyot and cordon spur training. The soil is calcareous clay and limestone-marl, shallow, well framed and formed by elements of red and white scale.
Stainless steel, then ageing in barrels and casks of Slavonian and French oak.
Service and pairing
Open one hour before and serve at about 18 degrees.
Structure and persistence make it an easy companion for important meat dishes, such as roasted pork shin.
