Bertani Catullo 750ml 2004   
Sku: 9911

The Teroldego grapes are grown in gravelly soil in the Campo Rotaliano area in a superb micro-climate that enjoys ample daytime sunlight and warmth with chilly evenings. Lagrein grapes are grown in the alluvial soils of steep hillside (250-350 meter elevations) vineyards north of Trento . The Merlot grapes come from hilly, clay-based soils south of Trento, around the town of Rovereto where the climate is slightly warmer. All three regions are known as prime growing zones for their respective varieties.

Wine maker notes
Harvest takes place in early October. The two grapevarieties are vinified separately with frequent remontages and a lengthy maceration. The Cabernet is fermented in special vats with a fan to improve the skin contact in the must. The Cabernet is refined in medium toast French oak barriques for 12 months, while the Corvina is placed, for the same length of time, in Slavonian oak barrels.

Technical notes
12.5% abv

Food pairing
Outstanding match for pasta dishes, grilled meats, pork and flavorful cheeses.
