Wine maker notes: This Riserva is made from a blend of 70% Merlot, Bordeaux vine, and 30% Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, native vine. Both cultivated in Lison, anarea highly suitable for red grapes. Due to multiple grape harvests and selections on the same plot in which there are very few bunches per plant brought to the required levels of maturity, this is a wine that has to go through a long balanced aging process and final quality checks. After the late harvest, carried out by hand, the two varieties are vinified separately with lengthy maceration of 30-35 days. Only at the end, during the definition of the blend, are the summer percentages of the cut agreed upon. The wine ages in casks for 15 months; at this stage the barrique becomes an oenological instrument in which different types of wood are selected and toasted to extol and balance the natural intensity and potency of the wine. The wine is then placed in 30 hl oak barrels to age, followed by 12 months of ageing in bottles.
Grape Variety/Blend: Merlot 70%, Refosco 30%
Tasting notes: Vineargenti is distinguished by its compact ruby red colour. The scent is full of berries, with hints of thyme, sweet spices and dried flowers. The flavouris embracing, the tannins are soft and elegant, and on the palate a beautiful fruitiness persists.
Food Pairing: Accompanies high quality red meats, roasts and aged cheeses. Perfect with a roasted shin of pork.
