Girapoggio – DOC Colli Euganei Cabernet

Girapoggio – DOC Colli Euganei Cabernet

The DOC Colli Euganei Cabernet – Girapoggio is a wine with a full and persistent flavour that is almost inscrutable at first taste.
The light and lean position, the limestone and difficult soil and the steep slopes are decisive elements in obtaining extremely concentrated grapes rich in polyphenols. To accommodate the natural conformation of the terrain, we have planted our Cabernet vines “girapoggio”, i.e. orthogonally to the line of maximum slope. The result is an unforgettable, long-lived red wine that combines the herbaceous and spicy hints typical of the variety with warm, fruity notes.

Pairings with Cabernet DOC Ca’ Lustra Zanovello
Our Girapoggio maintains herbaceous and spicy notes that are balanced with hints of fruit. An ideal balance for pairing with spiced pork chops, stews, duck in “pevarada” sauce and mature cheese. We recommend uncorking the wine a few hours earlier and serving at around 18°C.

History of an ancient vine: Cabernet
Cabernet Sauvignon is an international grape variety originating in the Bordeaux area of France. A wine of remarkable longevity, its structure and elegance make it one of the most popular varieties in the world.
Genetic studies have confirmed the origin of Cabernet Sauvignon from a cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. While maintaining its typical herbaceous and spicy notes recognisable, Cabernet is also able to best manifest the characteristics of its terroir. The richness of the Euganean soil, due to the combination of volcanic rock and limestone scales, gives our Girapoggio a solid body with mineral, tobacco and leather notes.
