The Assisi DOC area was founded in 1997. Initially renown for extra-virgin olive oil, the area saw its wine-producing potential acknowledged.
Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon confer this wine excellent smoothness and versatility. It is Sportoletti's top wine in terms of volumes and it is renown both in Italy and abroad for its outstanding quality/price ratio.
Sangiovese 50%, Merlot 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%
Rubin red with purple nuances. Fresh with fruity hints of cherries and blackberries, sweet spices and chocolate to the nose. Smooth and structured to the taste , with a complex and pleasantly tannic finish.
The vineyards are about 17-18 years , located at 400 m of altitude in the Assisi DOC area . The soil is generally shallow with a rich content in stones and organic matters due to Monte Subasio limestone erosion.
Harvest started very early this year, the first days of September, with Merlot , Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese.
The grapes undergo maceration into thermo-conditioned tanks for 10-15 days with regular pumpovers and delestage, and worked separately so as they can fully develop their own qualities.
Afterwards, malolactic fermentation is carried out and monitored. The wine refines in French oak, second-passage barriques for some months and then in bottles for 6 months.
