Leading-edge red wine of our company, the Arduo Rosso Riserva is a wine with rich and elegant texture, excellent in body but not excessive. Played on properties of advanced ripeness of the grapes, with the aim of proposing a primarily elegant and complete wine. Produced from extremely ripe grapes and very limited productive loads, it represents the top of the potential of our red varieties and of the care and passion we want to dedicate to Nature.
Vineyard and grapes: thirty years old vines, Merlot, Sangiovese e Marzemino, with a little Cabernt sauvignon. Extreme crop thinning to reduce the load and make it not only proportionate to the vines capacity to let the grapes ripen perfectly, but also adequate to the need for a particularly characterized wine.
Harvest: the harvest takes place at an advanced ripeness stage. The periodic tasting of the grapes in pre-harvest period is needed to evaluate the phenolic ripeness and to consciously decide to start the harvest only when every organoleptic detail is consistent with the prefixed quality goals.
Vinification: maceration from three to six weeks, depending on the vintage, at temperatures deliberately variable in a programmed way, to best extract the chemicals contained in the skins, so to enhance the olfactory and gustative proprieties of all the varieties of grapes used. Long ageing on fine lees, first and second stage barriques, bottling after at least 18 months after the harvest, without stabilisation, with only unrefined filtrations, and additional fining in bottle for a few months.
Organoleptic features: very intense ruby red, with garnet highlights if aged for over 4 years in bottle, aroma of sweet spices, very ripe but not cooked red fruits, hints due to ageing in wood, delicately integrated in the ample bouquet due to the properties of the grapes of origin, from the vinification method and from the fining. Very rich taste, with balance of sensations at very high level between acidity, softness and not violent astrincency. Complex aftertaste sensations, with clear perception of sensation of maturity of the tannins contained in the grapes of origin.
Preservation: ideal consume period between 2 and 7 years after the harvest. Preserve in a cool and dark place.
Serving and matching: serve at 18-20°C. Full-bodied wine, with tertiary aromas and still notable memory of the ripeness of the fruit, required in grapes of origin. Complex and caressing texture, elegance are its virtues. Serve with elaborate, rich dishes of meat, wild fowl, roast meats, aged cheeses.Format
