Girapoggio – DOC Colli Euganei Cabernet

For Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère we always chose the brighter and leaner positions on calcareous lands in order to achieve maximum maturity in the grapes. On the steep slopes of Arquà Petrarca, to accommodate the natural, animated configuration of the hill, we planted the rows at “girapoggio”.
Then we patiently wait 3 to 5 years for the wine, that is severe and inscrutable at the beginning, to be revealed after maturing in the oak barrels.

Grape varieties
Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère

Vintage
2016

Alcohol
14,5% vol.

Vineyard
In the Sassonegro area in Arquà Petrarca, chalky soil with a lot of clay, shallow, well-equipped in structure and with poor fertility. Plants of the late ’90s.

Vinification
It ferments in oak barrels. It matures for about 3 years in tonneaux and casks, then it rests and decants in cement tanks for some months. It is not clarified nor filtered.

Service and pairing
Uncork a few hours before, serving at around 18°C. Excellent pairing with the duck in “pevarada” sauce, a classic in Venetian cuisine. We recommend the consumption between the 5th and the 15th year of age.
