Giusti Recantina Augusto 2017
Smooth and intense, this full-bodied wine has a hint of mineral that gives it a touch of freshness. It is produced from a single variety, native Recantina grapes, a rare and precious treasure of the Montello. Intense with fruity notes of red plum and black currant (cassis) and floral notes of violets and cyclamen. This is also the moss and mineral notes reminiscent of freshly tilled soil. In the mouth, it is soft and velvety, with sweet tannins and pleasantly acidic aftertaste.
This is a wine that is suited to red meat and game, especially furred. Also excellent with duck breast, baked guinea fowl, and the medium-aged cheeses.
Red vinification. The Recantina grapes are harvested in the first ten days of October and vinified separately in stainless steel with contact between skins and must-wine about 15 days. This is followed by malolactic fermentation and aging in wood. This takes place in 2,5 T Slavonia oak barrels for 12-14 months. Finally, it is bottled and short aging in bottle pre-marketing.
Today the Estate has approximately 100 hectares of land, 70% of which is already planted with vines, divided into ten TENUTE or vineyards as follows: Tenuta Case Bianche, Tenuta Rosalia, Tenuta Rolando, Tenuta Sienna, Tenuta Abbazia, Tenuta Aria Valentina, Tenuta Emily, Tenuta Ava, Tenuta Amelia, and Tenuta Maria Vittoria. The purchase of land and subsequent redevelopment of the Tenute will continue and should be finished by 2017. The construction of the Winery, the place where the grapes are amassed and transformed, is the last part of the general project that began with the purchase of the agricultural land. With the Estate processing its grapes, it means that the whole supply line and transformation process can be controlled so that the QUALITY of the product is guaranteed, which is both basis and target of the Giusti Wine project.
