Moro Polo – DOC Colli Euganei Rosso
Moro Polo is our celebration of one of the frst denominations born in the Colli Euganei DOC area in 1969. It is an important but informal red wine we would like to be a “visit card” for the Euganean production. A complete and versatile wine that leaves its mark without being overly complex.
Obtained from different vineyards in Arquà Petrarca and Faedo valley, this Colli Euganei Rosso combines the austere character of the best Cabernet Sauvignon with the sweetness of Merlot and the strong flavor of Carménère.
After three years of ageing in oak barrels, we get a wine of balanced thickness, intact fruit and spontaneous pleasure.
We dedicated it to a proud and outspoken character: “Moro Polo”, also known as “Re del Venda”, whom for over half of last century was the popular and respected forester in the vast slopes of Monte Venda, owned at that time by Conte Giusti del Giardino.
Merlot, Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon
In Arquà on shallow, calcareous soil, in Faedo on clay, in both cases of scarce fertility.
It ferments in stainless-steel tanks, tonneaux and large French and Slavonian oak barrels. It matures for about 3 years in tonneaux, then it rests and decants in cement tanks for some months. It is not clarified nor filtered.
Service and pairing
Serve around 18°C. It can be easily paired with red meat and aged cheese. We recommend the consumption between the 5th and the 8th year of age.
The asterisk * is referred to a wine with a great “Value-for-money”.
