(46,01  / 1000 ml)

The 2019 Cassiano beguiles with intense fruit, reminiscent of sour cherries, wild raspberries and cassis, while appearing refreshingly cool. It is already a pleasure to drink at this stage, but it should be decanted, if possible with an hour's notice, and served slightly chilled, which wonderfully underlines its stimulating character.

Info about the wine

Merlot 42 %, Cabernet Franc 36 %, Tempranillo 9 %, Cabernet Sauvignon 8 %, Petit Verdot 5 %. The best red wine sites are in Manincor, at the Seehof and at the Panholzerhof south-eastern sites with lake view at 250-280 m above sea level. Strong sandy loam soils are interspersed with limestone gravel and other glacial rock deposits.

Info about the expansion

Each batch was pressed separately, the maceration took place in wooden vats, spontaneously with the grape's own yeasts. In 2007, the maceration time was extended to three weeks in order to exploit the optimal tannin maturity. The eighteen-month wood aging took place in barriques, with one third of the barrels being new.

Color

Muted violet red with black reflections.

Nose

The 2019 Cassiano beguiles with intense fruit, reminiscent of sour cherries, wild raspberries and cassis, while appearing refreshingly cool. The longer it is in the glass, the more clearly the aromas of the previous ageing in wood emerge, reminiscent of noble tobacco, vanilla and freshly ground pepper. Its scent is accompanied by animating wild herbs, which remind of rosemary, thyme and violets and additionally underline the cool character. An extremely intense and dense wine, this already shows us beautifully the nose.

Palate

On the tongue, we encounter a very coherent drop, with polished tannin, wonderfully embedded in the juicy fruit. Herbal components underline its animating impression. It is already a pleasure to drink at this stage, but it should be decanted, if possible with an hour's notice, and served slightly chilled, which underlines its stimulating character wonderfully. Maturation potential for further years is present, but one is inclined to drink it already now, best in combination with tasty Italian inspired kitchen.
