"Flora Cuvée" Cabernet Merlot Riserva Alto Adige DOC 2018 - Girlan

Flora Cuvée Cabernet Merlot Riserva, Alto Adige DOC, is an interesting red wine produced by the Girlan winery from grapes grown on the hills of the Oltradige, and partly from the Bassa Atesina. The highest plots of land are located at an altitude of around 450 - 500 metres above sea level, while the lowest plots are located at the bottom of the valley where the soil is sandy, warm and deep. A delicate mix that contributes to the creation of this "cuvée" of fine character. After racking, the wine goes into small oak barrels, where it rests slowly for a period of no less than 20 months. Then, after being blended, it is aged for a further 8 months in the bottle before being marketed as a Riserva. Intense ruby red, the nose reveals a pleasantly vinous and very pleasant character. It has the same fresh sensations on the palate, but also reveals intriguing balsamic notes of rosemary and thyme. An important wine, on the table it requires a tasty combination. Perfect with roasts, it can also easily stand up to savoury meats such as wild boar. A pappardella with meat sauce, for example, with a wine like this becomes a "sin" worth committing... Once in a while, of course.

23 must be a lucky number. At least in South Tyrol. Yes, because in 1923, the Girlan Winery was founded and, as chance would have it, it was founded by 23 winegrowers. Cabal aside, the winery is located in a historic 16th century farmhouse. Behind these traditional walls and in the intricate corridors of the cellar, the secrets of cutting-edge wine-making technology and the ideal conditions for ageing the wines are now hidden. A lot of water has passed under the bridge. And of wines in those cellars. Today, 200 winegrowers are involved in the Girlan project, spread over an area of approximately 220 hectares of vineyards. Vineyards in the best production areas of the Oltradige and Bassa Atesina, all worked with great dedication. The oenologist responsible for the creation of the wines is Gerhard Kofler, who personally maintains contact with the winegrowers and provides advice during the most delicate phases of the season. The result is here to be experienced. Wines of the highest quality, divided into three distinct lines: Le Selezioni, I Vigneti and I Classici.
