NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS

👁 of a beautiful intense ruby red;

👃🏻 on the nose: hints of cherries in alcohol, a light balsamic aroma and dried flowers for an important red from 100% Teroldego grapes;

👄 on the sip you can perceive a concentration of structure, vertical tension of a lively but balanced acidity from the two years in French oak barrels. A dynamic wine with peppery sensations which give freshness, a fruity finish that brings back to the initial smell, sweet notes in the finish alternating with balsamic and sensations of camphor.

 

FOOD PAIRINGS

The Granpasso is an intense, complex and persistent wine: for this reason it pairs well with dishes of great aromatic persistence, succulence and intensity. It's perfect with red meats and game. Try it with the typical dishes of mountain cuisine accompanied by polenta, or mountain cheeses such as a Monteveronese or an Asiago Stravecchio.

 

WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT

A 100% Teroldego grown in Feltre vineyards. The harvest is manual. After a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard, maceration takes place in the cellar, followed by alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation follows, always at a controlled temperature. The wine ages for 24 months in French oak barrels and at least 4 months in the bottle. 

YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...

its persistence and intensity. 

ORIGIN

TERROIR

We are in the Belluno area, an area of the Veneto where little and excellent wine is produced, being more widespread the production of beans, corn, barley, pumpkin and honey. Despite this, in recent years the cultivation of vines has resumed, also with the recovery of ancient native grape varieties.
Currently there are about ten farms that grow vineyards in the province of Belluno; some have chosen to focus entirely on native and rare Bianchetta and Pavana while others have preferred to diversify native vines with international ones.

 

WINERY

Pian delle Vette is located on the coasts above Pedavena, in Vignui, at 580 meters above sea level, a morainic territory left by glaciers, characterized by complex minerality in the subsoil. Pian delle Vette is the project of Egidio d'Incà and Walter Lira who instead of retiring, decided to take over this winery, destined to disappear, to make it flourish again, in an enchanted place, at the gates of the Park National of the Belluno Dolomites.
The challenge was to make quality viticulture at high altitudes, respecting the surrounding environment in conditions that are not always easy, for this reason choosing typical mountain or high hill grape varieties: a single vineyard of 2.5 hectares around the cellar within the classic "postcard landscape". The vineyards are about 15 years old, with both white and red grapes.

delusione

Decisamente non all’altezza. Forse un Teroldego 2014 non regge.
