A dry, but fruity, well flavoured wine showing ripe plum fruit with herbal notes. Well structured with a hint of spice.
Cantina Sacchetto was founded in 1920 and today is run by Filiberto Sacchetto, his son Paolo and daughter Beatrice who oversee all aspects of the winemaking process and aim to produce the best possible examples of wines for which the region is famous.
The grapes were de-stemmed prior to fermentation, which took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with selected yeast. The wine saw no wood and was kept in tank until bottled to preserve its varietal characteristics.
Accompanies cold cuts, grilled red meat, steaks, or poultry with tomato and mushroom sauces. Also delicious with simple chocolate desserts.
