Cabernet Sauvignon Terre Rosse

Quality dry red wine

Vineyard location and characteristics: Along with Teran and Refosco, a small part of Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on this thought-provoking iron-rich red soil in the vicinity of the city of Umag, spread out on location much closer to sea currents than our position from the Region of Buje.

Vinification and maturing: Alcohol fermentation begins at the temperature of 25 to 28 ºC for a total of 5 to 10 days. The malolactic fermentation and the maturation period are carried out in stainless steel barrels for 18 months, after which the wine is aged for an additional 6 months in the bottle to achieve balance.

Color: Dark ruby

Bouquet: Spicy, lovely wild berries and cherry fruitiness with trace of forest moss

Taste: Soft, smooth, fresh and fruity with hints of black forest soil

Gastronomic recommendation: Cured meats such as spicy sausages, kulen, veal cut with spices, moderately-aged cheeses
