NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS👁 a beautiful deep and luminous ruby red;
👃🏻 the nose reveals a fruity bouquet (red fruits and plum), and herbaceous, with aromatic herbs in evidence;
👄 on the palate it is warm and consistent, supported by vigorous tannins and adequate acidity. Long finish.
This Cabernet is a very persistent wine, with balanced tannins and the right acidity. It loves succulent food with great aromatic persistence. Perfect with cheeses and red meats. We recommend it with a venison fillet with polenta.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
Produced from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the vineyard called "Rencio", near Bolzano, at 300 meters above sea level, this Riserva from the Griesbauerhof house ages in barrique for 18 months, before completing ageing in the bottle.
YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...
its persistence and intensity.
We are in Alto Adige, an area very suitable for the production of white and red quality wines.
The vineyards are located at an altitude between 200 and 1000 meters above sea level and vines grow on very different soils. The native variety of Lagrein, for example, prefers warm gravelly or sandy soils, while the local Gewürztraminer vine expresses its best on clayey and very calcareous soils. Unique are the stony soils of dolomitic limestone, widespread above all in the southern offshoots of the Wine Route and which originate from the famous mountain massif of the Dolomites, a UNESCO world heritage site. Thanks to their mineral characteristics, these warm and very permeable soils are ideal above all for producing full-bodied white wines with a strong taste.
Griesbauerhof manages a splendid estate near Bolzano, in the hilly area of Santa Maddalena and Santa Giustina.
Maso Griesbauer has been owned by the Mumelter family since 1875. The passion for viticulture has been handed down from generation to generation up to the present day as a precious heritage. Today the winert is managed by Georg Mumelter together with his wife Margareth and their two sons Michael and Lukas. Their vineyards are located at an altitude between 300 and 500 meters above sea level, with a sunny exposure facing south, on particularly suitable soils, mainly of a sandy and clayey matrix. Vines are cultivated with great passion and all the processes between the rows are carried out manually. The property extends over 4 hectares, divided into several plots.
The "Rencio" vineyard is located in the hilly area above the city of Bolzano, where the red Schiava, Lagrein and Cabernet Sauvignon vines are grown, while the white grapes such as Pinot Blanc and Gris are grown in the "Weißhaus" vineyard. The work in the cellar is based on a careful selection of the grapes and on vinification carried out in the traditional way, with minimal oenological intervention, in order to enhance the personality of each vine and the character of the terroir.
