Langhe doc Rosso "Janin"

Grape-variety: Cabernet Sauvignon. Our land has proved a good home for this international variety, and the combination has produced a wine that has met with great acclaim in tastings throughout the world.

Growing location: Roggeri, San Biagio: historic vineyards located in the village of La Morra. Depending on the area, the soil is composed of calcareous marl, tufa and sandy veins.

Harvest: by hand, in the first ten days of October. It is usually delayed to achieve perfect ripening of the grapes, which are selected as early as the end of August: plenty of fruit prevails over the vegetal notes - in particular pepper - that are typical of this variety. The yield ranges between 5 and 6 tons per hectare, well below the limit fixed by the growing regulations (9 tons/Ha).

Vinification: the maceration on the skins lasts around 20 days, in heat-conditioned steel tanks. Frequent, gentle breaking up of the cap during this period caters for good extraction of the fine polyphenols that contribute to sensations of sweetness and softness and the development of fruity aromas.

Maturing: the wine is left still torbid on its lees until March, when it is racked. Then it stays for 12 further months in 225-litre French oak barrels, before spending 6 months in the bottle.

Colour: deep ruby red.

Nose: stands out for its highly appealing aromas, offering fruity overtones and conjuring up jam and spices. The bouquet is rounded off by the classic varietal note.

Taste: fresh, full-bodied and mouth-filling, with tannins just showing. The aromas come through on the palate too, including lingering hints of black-berried fruit and jam.
