Description

Vineyards: From grapes grown in Masottina’s own vineyards in the heart of the Piave region. A unique vineyard site, of alluvial origin, predominantly clay with limestone. Number of vines per hectare is approximately 4000.

Winemaking Process: Classical red vinification, with maceration occurring at a temperature close to 28°C to maximize colour extraction from the grape skins, followed by post- fermentative maceration. The wine was then aged in Slavonian oak and French barrique barrels for 24-36 months and further refined in bottles for three months.

Alcohol Content: 13%

Tasting Note

Tasting Note: Deep ruby red, expressive aromas and flavours of dark berry fruits, with notes of leather and cinnamon spice. Full-bodied, rich, smooth, and well balanced. Elegant finish.

Serving Method: Serve at 18-20° C.

About the Grape

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.
