CURTEFRANCA ROSSO DOC
VIGNA TAJARDINO 2015
In the last decades the idea of the Franciacorta as an area dedicated to the production of Classical Method wines has rightly taken root. Thanks to the excellent 2015 vintage, we have tried to redefine the essence of this wine, which we bottle with the same label since 1983.
A blending of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented with local yeasts, kept in extended contact with the peels and aged for a year and a half in large oak barrels (80%) and barriques (20%)
Six more months of aging in bottle have given completion and emphasis to the complex and elegant structure of this Curtefranca. Maybe the best edition ever from Tajardino.
