Andrea Marchetti, Luci Rosse
|Varietal||Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rondinella, Garganega, Trebbiano|
|Colour||Light Ruby Red|
|Taste||Another super quaffable light red wine. Zippy acidity, light tannins, red fruit flavours of raspberry, sour cherry with that citrus kick working beautifully with a little hint of funky funk. Another that can be chilled!|
The winery is located in the province of Mantova (Mantua in English)in the southern eastern corner of Lombardia, approx 8 km from the Garda’s Lake.
The vines are trained following the Guyot system and average 15 years of age, located at 100 meters above sea level.
The vineyard is organically grown. No synthetic chemicals are used, but only minimal quantities of copper and sulfur.
The alluvional soils of the Morainic hills are characterized by a stratification of compact calcareous clay and high salinity due to a mineral sedimentation left by an ancient glacier present 500,000 years ago.
The Harvest: mid-September, yield of 70 quintals / ha, manual harvest in boxes of 15/20 kg.
Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and left in contact with the skins for two days. The fermentation is spontaneous (indigenous yeast) and takes place in concrete vats.
No enological additives have been used - only a little bit of sulfur dioxide.
Aging: after the fermentation the wine ages in concrete until spring and then is racked for a second and last time in a fiberglass vat in order to sediment the lees left and after it’s bottled.
Decanting of the solid parts happens only with time and the winter cold. Unfined and unfiltered. - steephillwine
