Montefalco Rosso DOC

vino montefalco rosso doc - cantina le cimate

CHARACTERISTICS: Obtained from Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot and Sagrantino grapes. A clear, luminous and consistent colour. An inviting aroma, with hints of plum and cherry. Warm, smooth and enveloping in the mouth, with an elegant tannin which perfectly blends the structure. Refined for 6 months after bottling, it combines perfectly with full flavoured first courses and grilled meat.

VINIFICATION: The different varieties of grape are harvested and vinified separately. The fermentation is carried out at 25°C in temperature controlled steel storage tanks. The maceration of the grape skins lasts for 15 days during which time the wine undergoes 3 pump-overs every day. The wine refines 12 months in oak barrels.

TERROIR: It is a silt-clay soil moderately calcareous, fresh and deep with the vines exposed to the south-east and a plantation density of 3’000 plants per hectare.
