“Rosso d’Asia”

Still red wine

Vino rosso

Vineyards located in: Canneto Pavese.

Soil: the vineyards are located on a southwest-oriented steep sloping hillside. Sandy and cobbled soil.

Grapes: Croatina (90%) and Ughetta di Solinga (10%).

Vinification: after a careful hand-harvest, only the best clusters are pressed and kept in contact with the skins from 10 to 15 days. The must is then put in oak, where it ages for a minimum of 12 months.

Tasting notes: brilliant dark ruby colour, rich bouquet with ripe fruits, red berries, leather and spices. On palate, this well-balanced and full-bodied wine reveals an extremely dense fruit. The tannins and the anthocyanins draw the glass sides with coloured arches full of glycerine. This wine really reaches its best with age.

Pairing suggestions: it goes well with warm salami, hearty pasta or risotto dishes, lasagne, meat skewers, roasted pork or lamb.

Service temperature: best served at 18 °C in a glass with a large bowl.

Available formats: 0,75 l bottle and 1,5 l bottle.

Tal era io a quella vista nova:
veder voleva come si convenne
l’imago al cerchio e come vi s’indova;
ma non eran da ciò le proprie penne:
se non che la mia mente fu percossa
da un fulgore in che sua voglia venne.
A l’alta fantasia qui mancò possa;
ma già volgeva il mio disio e ‘l velle
sì come rota ch’igualmente è mossa,
l’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle.

Dante Alighieri
Paradiso, Canto XXXIII, 136-145
