Grapes: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon/20% Merlot/20% Cabernet Franc
Serafini & Vidotto are two old schoolfriends who decided to unite their talents and passion for high quality wines and vineyards, and so back in 1986 they purchase 20 hectares of vineyard land and ventured into the winemaking world. From the very beginning, they chose to plant and make wines from international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, though the pair has recently begun working with a once famous but now forgotten native grape, Recantina. In fact, Serafini & Vidotto has long been considered one of, if not the best producers of Cabernet wines in North Eastern Italy.
Merlot was harvested at the end of September, followed by the two Cabernets in late October, which were all fermented separately in barrique. Aged in new barrique for 15-24 months depending on varietal. Aged in bottle for 1-2 years before release. Deep bordeaux red color. Robust wine in extremely elegant texture; it has complex perfumes that range from raspberry to cocoa, vanilla to pepper, coffee to cassis (blackcurrant). Rich and full taste with very thick sweet tannins.
