ALCOHOL: 13 • YEAR OF PLANTING: 1987
FERMENTATION: stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature for approx. 15 days.
AGING: stainless steel tanks for 2 years, followed by at least 12 months in the bottle.
LONGEVITY: To be drunk generally 4 years after production, but the spice stands out more evidently later in time. It can age very well through 12 to 14 years… and up!
FOOD PAIRING: a very good match with finanziera (a traditional soup with offals); excellent with ravioli, feathered game and spicy cheese.
A very interesting wine, with a moderately intense but very persistent garnet red color. The Calosso has a distinctive bouquet, aromatic with intense spice green pepper and oriental essences. The mouthfeel is dry and particularly fascinating, with evident tar notes against a raisin background. Intensely mineral finish, with the spice from the bouquet coming back.
