Cabernet Sauvignon DOC Friuli 2021 - Castello di Spessa

Summer has now passed when, in the vineyards of Cormons, in the province of Gorizia, the technicians of the Castello di Spessa winery begin to assess the degree of ripeness of the Cabernet. Typically, in fact, the variety typical of the Bordeaux region, here in Friuli, ripens around October. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, this Friuli DOC is an excellent red for the whole meal, designed to make the most of the varietal's characteristics. In the winery, it starts with a fermentation phase in stainless steel at a controlled temperature. Then, after racking and malolactic fermentation (again in steel tanks), we continue with a slow ageing in barrels for no less than 12 months. Only then is the wine ready to meet the bottle. Intense ruby colour, the nose has clear notes of ripe red fruit and sweet spices. On the palate, however, it enters warm and soft, with fruity notes of plums and small red fruits under spirits. Warm spicy notes of vanilla and hints of cinnamon complete the picture. The finish is long, broad and soft. This wine is perfect with first courses with game sauces, but also with stewed meats and cured meats. For cheese lovers, this Cabernet also has the right stuff to hold its own with well-aged products.

The region is Friuli Venezia Giulia. The winery is that of Castello di Spessa. We are, let us be clear, in one of Italy's most prestigious wine-growing areas and one of the area's most qualitative wineries. The origins of the winery date back to the late 1970s, when Loretto Pali bought an estate of around 60 hectares in the Isonzo area. Then, in 1987, the property was further expanded with the acquisition of the Castle and a further 28 hectares of vineyards, this time in the Gorizia Collio, in Capriva del Friuli. All of Castello di Spessa's wines are produced from its own vineyards, where typical local grape varieties dominate with: Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are then aged in the medieval cellars and in the bunker, dug under the castle during World War II (and only discovered in 1987 during a renovation). Situated at a depth of about 18 metres, at a constant temperature of 14 degrees Celsius, the bunker is the ideal place for ageing the estate's fine wines.
