The Carmenère (Sugano) and Refosco d.p.r. (Re Sugano) grapes are collected from particular zone of vineyards called Sugano in cadastral maps, harvested to perfect ripeness and vinified in steel tanks to preserve the character of each variety. It reveals an important stylistic and territorial footprint. Unmistakable aromas and tastes. Not so much powerful but elegant, very fruity but "light" in alcohol. Amazing not for "muscularity" but for its fineness, lightness and their net traceability to the variety.
