You are hereWines
Surprising are colours and landscape light, hills outline with vineyards that seem so far on the horizon line: in those sunny calcareous lands we till our grapevine and year by year we repeat grape harvests to le tour wines born.
A particular cultivation system and an eco-compatible vineyards management, together with experience but, most of all with our oenologist passion, that follow, step by step, the whole die, took us to valorise at most our autochthonous vineyards and to insert International vineyards like Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot, Sauvignon. Particularly suitable to match our gastronomic tradition dishes.
- CA’ DEL LUPO
Lambrusco - Grasparossa Vine
The intense rather deep purple colour reveals the extraction and density of the pigment, the prelude to the effective structure that is confirmed to the taste. The strong, penetrating bouquet is lively with both vinous and fruity connotations, lightly glazed, the fresh marc, blackberry and blueberry are almost ripe, a wild-yet-sweet undertone. The full flavour is marked by all the good elements of the hills, with a great labrusca aroma, an underlying alcoholic vein, brilliant freshness, tannin and well blended mineral salts. The persistence of the flavour is truly long, and overall the wine offers great balance and body. We can equally call it harmonic, as the quality of all the components is truly high. A most noble hillside expression of the Grasparossa, which generally struggles to demonstrate such levels of fineness. A worthy companion to our local boiled meats, stews, green and red sauce, or served with mustard. Equally, meat-stuffed peppers and tomatoes, Argentine spit roasts and oven-cooked suckling pig.
Lambrusco - Montericco Vine
The curtain of tradition goes down as it is served, demonstrating a well extracted colour and generous froth, which cleverly dissipates at just the right time, paying homage to the fine memory of this type of local vine, not an easy fellow, the Pinot nero of Lambruscos. The bouquet also maintains the same authentic references, a slightly rustic yet fine head; the full fruit of mature blackberries, the grassiness of the hedgerow, a few wild dog roses, underlie this solid proposal. A Lambrusco that stands alone, with its own style and a strong local character. And the taste follows the same well-prepared path, demonstrating body and austerity, perfectly dry, not a natural charmer, good alcohol level, supporting the not sour but fruit-rich hardness, with a pleasing persistence. It is a wine that also goes well with roasts: roast pork with potatoes, roast veal with rosemary, roast guinea fowl, or pasta dishes with ragu sauce, egg pasta with butter and bacon.
A generous rosé, from its pronounced bright cherry colour, with a well-defined visual consistency. The bouquet is intense and precious, in the small acidic red berries of the redcurrant, woodland strawberries and dog rose, accentuated by the vinous, glazed hints that make it seem fresh from the vat. The aromatic fruity components quickly reach the palate, creating a very pleasant alcoholic-glycerinic sensation that has always been present in this type of hill, and the sapidity leaves a pleasant trail of strong flavoured, long-lasting persistence in the mouth. Excellent accompaniment for courgette and speck tortelli, ham rosettes, onion and cherry tomato omelettes, as well as with pizza, farinatas and focaccias.
- CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Vigna Conte Re
Although purple in tone, the appearance underlines shades of ruby and a hint of 'garnet, confirming its maturity. The visual clarity is total, and its dense consistency confirms its body. Its bouquet denotes a fine maturity and its ethereal-alcoholic vein takes hold and accompanies the fruity sensations of cherries in spirit, the striking grassy tones bordering on mature hay. The flavour is rich, warmly alcoholic, with mature, docile tannins and strong mineral tones. It certainly demonstrates body and tends towards balance with its delightful escalation towards full maturity. Its persistence is long, a synonym of the rather high quality of this, only at first glance, basic Cabernet. Its gastronomic combinations include oven-cooked ham with potatoes, Sicilian vegetable caponata, Piedmont "gran fritto" pork, fillet of beef with green pepper or balsamic sauce.
The visual approach is attractive and sophisticated, the colour nicely intense, bright straw yellow with a good effervescence that lasts; the bouquet surprises for its character and personality, intense, with an entrance that brings strong mineral hints mixed well with a rich accompaniment of musk plants with some fruity undertones, fragrant and superbly fine. The flavour has the same character, we might think of a lighter wine, yet its body takes hold, with an excellent alcoholic-glycerine base, freshness and mineral tones, precisely compensating, and long persistence in the mouth, a wine concerning which much can and must be said. The combination can be very versatile, not only for an aperitif but throughout a Mediterranean meal based on shellfish, raw tuna tartar, swordfish carpaccio with oil and pepper, seafood, poached sea bream or with vegetables (egg “cappellacci” pasta with ricotta and spinach, borrage tortelli, fusilli with pesto and cherry tomatoes...).
- VARA ROSE’
Chardonnay frizzante rosé
It sits in the glass with its pleasant effervescence, demonstrating structure with its rich cherry colour, the bouquet is fairly intense, underlined by fruits (mature strawberries and raspberry), flowers (dog rose) and hints of fragrant winey head. The flavour is full and intense, in its aromatic and gustative components, well defined, the alcoholic softness underlines the body. Suited to semi-aged charcuterie: coppa piacentina, lonzino, not too fatty pancetta; stuffed and oven-baked pasta (meat ravioli, conchiglioni with ragu sauce, gramigna with sausage); vegetable dishes (spelt and vegetable salad, stuffed tomatoes).
