vineyard and land

Vineyard planted in 1996, with East/ North-East exposure and loam-sandy soil

food pairings

Ideal pairing for first courses and pasta with white meat sauces or fish soups. Perfect with main courses such as game, roasts, or fatty fish. Its freshness also makes it an excellent accompaniment for cured meats and medium-aged cheeses.

organoleptic characteristics

Intense ruby red colour with typical garnet hues. Broad and complex on the nose, it expresses itself with floral scents of violet, jasmine, and small red fruits, followed by a delicate spiciness. The palate is enveloping with a range of flavours in perfect harmony with the nose, ranging from small red fruits to spices, balanced with a pleasant minerality and persistent finish. The tannic texture is smooth yet delicate and silky, balanced by acidity and a pleasant minerality, making this wine harmonious and elegant.

Winemaking and aging

The grapes are de-stemmed but not pressed in order to maintain the grape intact. Subsequently, cold pre-fermentative maceration is done before the alcoholic fermentation, which occurs in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature with short daily pumping overs. Once the fermentation is completed, the wine is racked, and the malolactic fermentation in barriques follows. After about nine months in French oak barriques of different origins, it is further aged for about nine months in a large oak cask. Lastly, the wine rests in the bottle for at least eighteen months before release.

Fresher exposure, protected by the woods, a delicate and velvety expression of Pinot Nero.

The grapes come from a single vineyard planted in 1996 with mainly loam-sandy soils and with East/North-East exposure. We have discovered this special plot thanks to the single parcel vinification method and the study of the soil composition on our hill started in 2020. The same vinification and aging process as the SG ’67; the differences in expression between these two wines are mainly due to the different exposure and different soils of the two parcels.
We could say that SG ‘67 and V 18 are like husband and wife: they live in the same house (the Estate) and do the same things (same vinification process): one comes from Mars and the other from Venus.

Pinot Grigio

Katari

A fresh and balanced Pinot Grigio, which maintains the intrinsic finesse of the grape variety without distorting it.
