Description

Vineyards: From grapes grown in Masottina’s own vineyards in the heart of the Piave region

Winemaking Process: 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. All the body, tannins, and flavour comes from the natural richness of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, as the wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel only.

Ageability: Although easily enjoyed now, this wine will also age well in your cellar for another 2-3 years.

Alcohol Content: 13.5%

Tasting Note

Tasting note: Medium deep ruby red colour, this medium-bodied wine has deep aromas and flavours of lush red fruits – red currant, cherry, and raspberry – with slight notes of herbs and violets. On the finish, the wine is round and full, with well-integrated tannins.

Serving Method: Serve at temperature of 16-18° C.

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.

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.
