Granaccia Vigneto dei Cappuccini Colline Savonesi IGT
Grape Variety: Granaccia 100% (Alicante)
Area of Production: A vineyard of approximately half a hectare cultivated in one of the characteristic kitchen gardens of the plain dominated by the ancient village of Quiliano (SV). The loose, sandy ground highlights the characteristic aromas of the grape.
Vine System: Guyot. The age of the vines in this vineyard varies between 15 and 20 years and the rows undergo a severe thinning at the time of the season.
Harvest: The grapes are selected and gathered in small pierced cases in the third ten-day period of September.
Winemaking: Traditional red winemaking, with crushing and fermentation at a controlled temperature (26°C). Maceration with the skins for about 10 days with several replacements made per day to facilitate the extraction of colour.
Maturation: Produced only during favourable vintages. Following fermentation, the wine spends approximately one year in small barrels, then is held in steel containers for approximately 6 months before being bottled.
Ageing: After bottling, the wine rests for at least 6 months before being released onto the market.
Alcohol: 14 % vol.
Tasting Notes: Has a bright red garnet colour with orange reflections and a slightly mineral, airy and fine aroma that recalls forest fruits and sweet spices such as cinnamon and vanilla. The taste is full, warm and elegant; the end is long and pleasant. To be tasted with baked pasta, mast rabbit and poultry, mature cheeses.
