This is the first wine of the new vintage.
This is not just a Veneto tradition, but here it has put down its deep roots.
Novello I.G.T. delle Venezie
Piedmont hills in the Treviso area.
70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Must is obtained through stalkless pressing, marc maceration at a controlled temperature, a technique developed by Pasteur in the 1800s and enhanced by Flanzy in the Beaujoulais area. The selected grapes, mellow and untouched, are kept into particular steel containers, saturated with CO2 produced by yeasts. The complete lack of oxygen triggers bio-chemical reactions, that give to the wine a characteristic aroma. Afterwards the vinification produces a really fragrant and intensely fruity wine.
In steel containers for a short time.
6 - 10 months, even though it is pleasantly drinkable up to 12 months.
Bright and lively Ruby red.
Intense, clear, fruity with typical scents of carbonic maceration.
Dry, fresh, pleasantly well-balanced, smooth and delicate.
