The Mascarpine holding is at Sommacampagna, which lies south-east of Lake Garda, and is made up of 15 hectares of vines. Vinification: Gentle crushing and destemming, followed by fermentation with frequent contact of the must with the skins. Once the alcoholic fermentation is over, it goes into small oak barrels for at least a year. Ageing is completed in bottle for at least 6 months before the wine is released for sale.
Color: Deep ruby red. Nose: Fine and elegant, with notes of ripe fruit and preserves, cherries, strawberries, plums, blueberry, raspberry, rose, violet, with hints of vanilla and liquorice on the finish. Flavor: Powerful sensations due to its marked but ripe tannins, which have matured during its sojourn in cask, giving a long, rounded finish.
