Friuli Colli Orientali
denominazione di origine controllata
The fields of the Estate, in the municipality of Buttrio (Udine). The soil is predominantly marly-clayey.
Pre-fermentation cold maceration followed by a fermentation with 8 days of contact with the skins in order to extract the noble components of the skins that give structure and body to the wine.
In wooden casks and then aged in bottle in underground cellars.
Intense ruby colour and lively tonality.
Intense and pronounced with aromas of morello cherry, violets, wild berries and cherry jam.
Dry and soft, but with a decisive and balanced tannic note. On the palate it is rich and concentrated with a pleasant and persistent aftertaste.
A classic with bodied, roasted or grilled meat-based dishes or aged cheeses.
Straight away but, as many Merlot wines, slowly but constantly evolving. Can last at least 6 years.
Best served at room temperature (18°C) after a couple of minutes for oxygenation.
