New Arrival. Special project of Simple Wine & Bonardi winery. NAPA style Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva.
Winemaking: our Cabernet grow up in the Langhe and Roero hills. Once the grapes achieve the right ripeness degree, the harvested bunches are transported to the cellar where they are carefully selected and destemmed.
Softly pressed it stored in steel tanks for the first fermentation phase when the colour, aromas, tannins and structure from the skin of the berries are extracted. After this first phase, they are separated and transferred to tonneaux and barriques.
Malolactic fermentation takes place inside the barriques and tonneaux, where they remain for at least 18 months. In the following months the wine refines through the exchange of oxygen allowed by the porosity of the wood, which softens the tannin making it less invasive and more elegant and enriching the wine with a greater complexity of aromas such as the hint of vanilla typical of oak.
Winemaker notes:An austere, complex, generally very aromatic wine, which expresses all the wonders of the forest and the pristine mountains. On the nose, mainly emerge wild berries, black cherry, plum, perfectly integrated with the vegetable scents of the undergrowth, musk, pine needles, oak leaves. But a more careful analysis will reveal the more material organoleptic characteristics, linked to the rock, graphite often with balsamic puffs, black pepper and ink. Flaviana Fia
