Friuli Aquileia, DOC Superiore
Cervignano del Friuli
Vinification and ageing
The grapes are fermented in traditional vertical vinification tanks, in which the wine macerates on the skins for 12 days. After the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations have taken place, the wine is aged for 6 months in Slavonian oak barrels in order to give it greater harmony and complexity.
Limpid and bright ruby-red color of an attractive intensity.
Characteristically intense aroma distinguished by an elegant scent of plum, cherries and tenuous perfumes of wild berries.
Dry, full, lightly tannic in the wine’s youth, then becoming softer or almost velvety, properly balanced and extremely enticing.
Best if served at 16°-18°C (61°-64°F).
The wine combines well with the hearty flavours of country cooking and it is the ideal companion of every type of roast, grilled red meat, game and aged cheeses, whether crumbly types like Grana or milky versions like Vezzena.
