Production area : Castelvecchio is a part of the Karst (Carso) area in the province of Gorizia (Sagrado city). The landscape is typical of the Karst region: arid and rocky soil with a reduced stratum of red sand, but rich in iron and lime-stone. The area is constantly ventilated and influenced by the near sea.
Harvesting and vinification
First 4 months in stainless steal containers to complete the malolactic fermentation and to favour tartaric precipitation; 1 year in small barriques of 225/350/550 litres of Franch/Californian oaks; 1 year in 7,5, 15 and 25 Hl barrels of Slavonian/Franch oaks; 4/6 months in bottles before release.
Color Intense ruby red color. Smell Ethereal, lightly vinous with pleasant scents of wild fruits. Taste Dry, full rounded body, vaguely bitter.
Goes well with
Roasts and game are particularly enhanced by this wine, which is also ideal to accompany other robust dishes typical of Friulian cuisine. We suggest to serve it at 18-20°C.
