  • Country: Italy
  • Altitude: 320-420 meters (1.050-1.360 ft.)
  • Exposure: South – South-West
  • Cultivation: Guyot
  • Soil: rocky and abundant minerals of iron which give the typical reddish colour to the indigenous rock
  • Climate: Mild climate. It permits an even distribution of precipitation between both spring and autumn, and a ventilation of the vineyard supported by almost daily “descending” winds brought about by the Alpine bow. In the winter, snow is frequent, which supports the slow process of sedimentation of the soil

  • Winemaking: in steal tanks for 25-30 days at controlled temperature. The wine is aged for 40 months in 20 hl Slavonian oak barrel. Finally 8 months in bottle
  • Wine Description: intense garnet red, wine with big structure, with complex and variegated aromas of fruits of the forest and light balsamic scent, with minerality and ripe fruits end
  • Food matches: suggested with red meat, old cheeses and dark chocolate
  • Serving temperature: 18/20° C
  • Shelf life: over 15 years, if correctly stored
  • Alcohol: 15.5%Vol.
  • Acidity: 6.0 g/l
  • Sugar residual: 4.8 g/l for il Sogno; 9.0 g/l for l’altro Sogno.

L’altro Sogno is privileged with particularly high sugar residues that evolve in a wonderful harmony of flavors and a sense of affection, and of smoothness that only a miracle of nature can give to a wine.
