DENOMINAZIONE DI ORIGINE CONTROLLATA E GARANTITA

The vineyard on the Meruzzano cru stands at an altitude of 320 m. on the hill that climbs up from the southern tip of the S.Rocco Seno d’Elvio hamlet to Treiso. 

Facing south on clay and calcareous soil with a high number of vines per hectare and careful soil management with production techniques that fully bring out the properties of the grapes.

Lengthy fermentation on the skins is followed by ageing in oak casks to produce a nose showing red fruit and aromatic herbs, and a well-bodied taste supported by powerful tannins that evolve over time into balsamic and fruity sensations. Recommended serving temperature 18-20°C.
