CAPRIANO DEL COLLE ROSSO DOC RISERVA 2016
Manual grape harvesting, destemming and gentle pressing, with about 7 days' maceration.
After decantation, the wine is placed in new barriques of 225 litres for two years
The wine undergoes sterile filtration and bottling and is then left to mature for another year in the bottle before being offered for sale
Colour: Intense ruby red
Bouquet: Initially a bouquet of roses and redcurrants, followed by spicy notes of black pepper and hints of roast coffee beans and bitter cocoa
Flavour: A broad, sinuous initial flavour with a measured fleshiness; the structure and the sweet tannins, well balanced by a good level of acidity, are noticeable. Long persistence and clean after-taste
Perfect with grilled meats or steak. Also try it with traditional italian dishes, as Bolognese and Tomato sauce. Excellent with well ripened hard or semi-hard cheeses.
