Mezzacorona cultivates this variety of grapes on the hills around Ala, a municipality in Trentino at the end of Val di Ronchi in Vallagarina.
Verified the perfect ripening of the grapes in vineyards, we proceed to the manual harvesting of a first tranche of grapes in order to drying theme in a temperature and humidity controlled room. During this period - which lasts about 70 days - the grapes ripen and evolve, releasing unexpected aromas and velvety sensations.At the end of the cycle the grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and the juice obtained is fermented in steel at a controlled temperature of 25 °C - 28 °C with selected yeasts for this type of wine.The rest of the grapes are harvested as late as possible consistent with the climate evolution of the season and their health status. Even in this case, the grapes are de-stemmed and left to ferment in stainless steel containers with a strictly controlled temperature of 25 °C - 28 °C inoculating specific yeasts.Once the fermentation ends, the two parts are put to rest in steel containers pending their assembly and aging in the bottle.
The color is ruby red, extremely decisive. The aromas are intense and embrace a bit of all the fruit of the underbrush, even jam, and cherries in brandy. The taste is pleasant, soft with delicate tannins, consistent with the aromas and persistent.
It is an ideal companion for medium-aged cheeses, pasta dishes with delicate seconds and white sauce based on white and slightly fatty red meats.
