Cabernet Sauvignon IGT delle Venezie is a powerful wine, full bodied and persistent on the palate.
The grapes are generally harvested at the middle of October, pressed with elimination of stems (to avoid excessive astringency in the wine) and vinified in red: must an skins are left in contact for 10/15 days to allow the fermentation and the extraction of polyphenolic compounds which contribute to a wine’s colour, tannins and aromas. Pumpovers are carried out daily for a better extraction. Once fermentation is finished, the wine is separated from the pomace, aged in steel for 3-4 months and cold stabilized. Then it is filtered and bottled, to be put on the market about a month after the bottling.
