Things to know about wine
This jewel is handpicked from the grapes of the youngest vineyards and the coolest hillside sites and precisely selected before being chilled. The process of stalk removal and maceration is complemented by almost five days of cold maceration. The fermentation process does not require any additional yeasts and takes place at moderate temperatures between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius. A short fermentation maceration follows, lasting no longer than five days, before the wine is drawn off. Both malolactic fermentation and ageing enjoy the climatic benefits of steel. Bottling usually takes place in the spring after the harvest.
This wine captivates with its deep garnet red.
The 2019 Il Corzano Rosso already reveals itself in the fragrance as an Italian classic with a refreshing accent of graphite, followed by a refined smoky note. The sweet fruit aromas of plum, cranberry and fig contrast harmoniously with the delicate scents of violet and wild rose, which add complexity and depth to the bouquet.
The first sip reveals a fruit bomb of red fruits with an invigorating acidity. Fine salty accents and a tannin structure that is as robust as it is mature characterise this drop. This wine seems to be literally designed for authentic Italian cuisine. Every sip tempts you to take another - the higher alcohol content remains almost unnoticed.
The sensual combination of beetroot carpaccio with burrata and rosemary goes perfectly with this wine. Equally recommended are grilled scallops, refined with olive oil and a bed of thyme herbs. Or how about a pasta al dente, refined with chorizo and a hint of lime zest?
