Cabernet Riserva Graf Alto Adige DOC 2018 - Cantina Merano

All the power of the best Cabernet can be found in this precious wine. This vine, after all, is a real champion, always able to surprise with wines of great personality. Its origin, as everyone knows, is French, in the Bordeaux region to be precise. What some may not know, however, is that at the foot of the Alps, in the heart of Alto Adige, Cabernet has for some time now found an ideal habitat that allows it to express itself to the full, giving rise to full-bodied reds with that typical delicately spicy aroma. Cantina Merano, in particular, uses it to make this Riserva, which captivates at first taste. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in a special rotofermenter for about 15 days. This is followed by organic malolactic fermentation and a long period of maturation in new and used barriques, as well as in small oak barrels. Deep red in colour, this Cabernet has aromas reminiscent of currants, wild cherries, liquorice and leather. In the mouth it reveals a velvety and soft taste, with a nice tannin. A decidedly elegant wine, it has a nice long and pleasant finish. Excellent with game or lamb, it is a red wine that can also be served with a simple grilled beefsteak. Good today, this mountain red is not afraid to age. Stored well in the cellar, it will give us great satisfaction for many years to come.

Sometimes a few numbers are enough to understand everything. In the case of Cantina Merano, based in Marlengo, on the hills overlooking the city, the numbers are simple. Between 300 and 900 metres above sea level, the vineyards enjoy perfect exposure and the beneficial temperature range that every wine lover seeks like the Holy Grail. Over 1940 hours of sunshine per year are enjoyed by the vineyards here. There are 16 grape varieties in the vineyards, which produce 60% of the red wines (quality) and 40% of the white wines. Of these varieties, three are indigenous to the region and produce wines with an unmistakable character. The winery produces a total of 1.3 million bottles a year. The secret? Hard manual work, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, to ensure careful and gentle processing of each grape variety. In the cellar, in particular, tradition and innovation are combined with expertise, foresight and care. The philosophy that guides every choice is that of "Less is more", because the character of the grapes must still be recognisable in the glass of wine.
