Descrizione vino

A blend composed by Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that praises the IGT denomination “Rosso delle Venezie”. The vineyards are trained with Guyot method on lands characterized by marls and sandstones of Eocenic origin. The composition of “Vertigo” has a double function: as Merlot represents the international varieties, it is a point of connection between Friuli and the rest of the world. Cabernet Sauvignon gives balance and complexity. The wine-making considers the elimination of stalks and a period of maceration in steel at controlled temperature. Frequent batonnages help the extractions of the aromas and of the colour. The maturation is managed both in steel and in French oak barrels for 12 months. After the bottling, the wine rests in thermo-conditioned rooms for at least 4 months.
