Description

Made from 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in Masottina’s own vineyards on the famous Piave plain of the Veneto region.

Following high temperature maceration for 10-12 days, to promote maximum extraction of the colour and fruit flavours, the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the wine’s freshness. Oak barrels (Slavonian and French oak) were used to mature the wine for a few months however and most of the body, tannins, and flavour comes from the natural richness of the grapes

Tasting Note

Medium deep ruby red colour with purple highlights; this medium-bodied wine has aromas and flavours of lush red fruits – cherry, blackberry, and raspberry – with slight floral (violets) and woodsy notes. On the finish, the wine is round and full, good acidity, with well-integrated tannins.

About the Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon: One of the "Top Seven Grapes" (that make up 75% of the World's wine), it is rivalled only by Merlot in terms of quantity for production of high-quality red wine. It's traditonal home is Bordeaux, but it is grown in almost every wine region in the World. Its realtive small berry size provides rich aromas and flavours -- characteristically cassis -- natural high tannins, and important structural elements for making long-lived wine.

Merlot: One of the "Top Seven" grapes (that make up 75% of the world's wine), it is the most planted quality red-wine grape in the world. With origins in France, and part of the famous Bordeaux blend, you can now find it growing almost anywhere in the World. Like Chardonnay it is fashionable as a wine-by-the-glass due to its soft nature, balancing acidity, and rich dark fruit -- think plums -- aromas and flavours.

Masottina

Masottina is a family-run company with vineyards on the sunny hills of Conegliano, based in Castello di Roganzuolo, only 60km from Venice. It produces a wide range of wines typical of the province of Treviso, by using grapes from its own vineyards and sourcing grapes grown in the best areas. Here, brothers Adriano, Valerio and Renzo Dal Bianco produce some of Italy’s best wines, including the Prosecco of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene DOC, and the classic red and white Colli di Conegliano DOC wines: Montesco and Rizzardo.

At every step in the growing and production process, Masottina pays respect to old traditions. Mature grapes are hand harvested and vinified with as little impact to the grapes as possible. The most prestigious red wines are matured in French oak barriques, to express their great love of wine and the extraordinary oenological traditions of the land.

The care and respect for grapes and wines continues at Masottina’s modern headquarters at Castello Roganzuolo, just outside Conegliano, where they employ the most advanced technologies in the production of wine, maturation of important red wines, and in bottling, before their wines are shipped to wine lovers around the world.

Every Masottina wine is made true to their philosophy: to invest passion, science and care in producing great wine that gives satisfying and joyous emotions to those who taste it.
