South Tyrolean Cabernet GRATUS DOC
Wine growing area: The sun-drenched plains of the Lowlands and the hilltops surrounding Montan is where we find the grapes ripening especially for our Cabernet GRATUS. The sandy clay soils provide the best conditions for the over-35-year-old vines to grow. They are cultivated using the Guyot trellis system and lie at 220 - 380 metres above sea level.
Vinification: The handpicked grapes are gently crushed and fermented for 12 days in a fermentation tank at a controlled temperature of 28°C. During the fermentation process, the must and grape skins remain in constant contact with each other in order to achieve a better fruit, colour and tannin quality. After fermentation, this Cabernet is aged for 15 months in small French oak barrels and then for a further 5 months in the bottle.
Harvest and Yield: The sun-ripened grapes are harvested by hand from mid October. The yield is 50 hectolitres of wine per hectare.
Reccomended with:: This Cabernet GRATUS goes superbly well with game and exquisite, dark meat dishes.
