Vinification: The grape varieties were fermented separately. After a soft destemming and

pressing, the grapes were fermented on their skins for a week’s time in stainless steel tanks.

During this phase the wine completed its alcoholic fermentation at a temperature held to a

maximum of 25°Centigrade. With the completion of the malolactic fermentation, terminated

by the end of the year, the aging phase began, principally in stainless steel tanks with a small

part aged in oak. Bottling of the wine took place from April 20 on.

Tasting notes: Lacustre Red shows a full red color with purplish highlights. The nose,

pleasurable and intense, offers fruity notes of cherries, blackberries, and plums fused with

aromas of vanilla and coffee. The palate is supple, enveloping, and full of fruit on the finish

and aftertaste.. Reccomended with ragù pasta and risotto, as well as meat dishes and roasts.
