Erminio was a man of another era, tenacious, honest and of few words. He loved the mountains. Up there, just a look and a bit of silence in the heart are enough to live true emotions. This Cabernet Franc is the wine that best represents him and that, in its particularity, is able to convey unique and unrepeatable sensations, emotions that take us back to a moment of the past, to look forward with confidence to the future.
Since 1800 my ancestors have been passing on their love of land and viticulture. They bred cattle, grew wheat and tobacco and produced cheese, butter and wine for the family. Now we are proud to carry on this passion offering you our wines. Our aim is to enhance the value of the territory where we live, the vineyards, the microclimate and the winemaking process which has been handed down through generations.
The winery is situated in Mori Vecchio, a hilly area famous for viticulture and for the production of full-bodied red wines. The vineyards are set on terraced lands 'stolen' from steep woods above the town. The training system is 'Guyot semplice', typical of the classical Haut-Mèdoc grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The favourable microclimate of southern Vallagarina valley, which is characterised by considerable temperature range between day and night, and the south-east exposition contribute to reinforce berries skins, to make the flavours more intensive and to allow a perfect grape ripening.
