Carmenère Wine Veneto IGT 2017
Del Rèbene – Camenère Veneto IGT 2017
Our Carmenere Del Rebene was born from a vine that was thought to be extinct after the epidemic of the late 19th century phylloxera, which here on the Berici Hills, found a new life after it had been called Bordeaux Black or Old Cabernet for years
Deep ruby red wine with purple hues, the nose is intense in the aromas of blackberry, compote cherries, eucalyptus and juniper, with a subtle and pleasant smoky note.
On the palate it is full-bodied, reveals elegance and gustatory thickness, with tannins in relief but well balanced by freshness and flavor.
Red meats (beef and lamb), game, cold cuts and cheeses.
The vinification begins with the preparation, a few days before the harvest, of the pied de cuvè.
A modest percentage of grapes are harvested, de-stemmed and left in a usually steel barrel, where fermentation spontaneously begins, aided by one or two daily punching down.
After a few days the pied de cuvè is in full fermentation. We then proceed with the harvest of the entire vineyard. The grapes are de-stemmed and fall into the fermentation tanks in vitrified concrete by fall.
The pied de cuvè is added little by little which immediately starts the fermentation of the freshly de-stemmed grapes. Fermentation on the skins lasts between 10 and 14 days depending on the vintage.
We then proceed with the racking and pressing of the marc. The wine is thus transferred to other tanks, also of vitrified cement, where a period of aging begins which can last from one to two years.
The wine is then bottled directly in our cellar which it will leave only when it is brought to our customers’ tables.
