Raboso

REDENTORE Raboso has intense notes of cherry, raspberry and delicate floral hints. Thanks to its decisive character it is ideal with salami, stewed beef and barbeque. Intriguing with pork, sausages and cheeses. We suggest to serve at 16-18°C.

Grapes

100% Raboso.

Production Area

North-east of Italy.

Soil

Alluvial very rich in clay.

Climate

Mild, with very few rain showers and a high summer temperature which allows the grapes to ripen perfectly.

Density of the plantation and training system

6.000 vines per hectare trained with guyot system.

Vineyard management

To obtain a perfect ripening of the grapes, beyond the normal vineyard management, we carry out summer pruning and careful leaf thinning. Furthermore, the yield is kept very low in order to produce grapes rich in body and aroma.

Harvest

End of October, picking up very ripe grapes, with a deep colour, a complete aromatic structure and smooth tannins.

Vinification

Destemming and crushing of the grapes, maceration for 10-15 days in special vessels at the temperature of 25-28°C, with frequent pumping over. After this period the wine is taken out and ends its fermentation exclusively with wild yeasts at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats. After malolactic fermentation the wine matures for some months on its noble lees in barrique at a controlled temperature.

Second fermentation

Alcohol

12-13,5% by vol. (it depends on the vintage).

Tasting characteristics

Intense ruby colour, presents intense notes of cherry, raspberry and delicate floral hints. It is charming for its acidity, aroma and structure.

Serving temperature

16-18°C.

Food matching

It is ideal with salami, stewed beef and barbeque. Intriguing with pork, sausages and cheeses.

Storage

In a cool and dark place, keeping the bottle in a horizontal position. Its structure and complexity enable the wine to improve during maturation in the bottle, which can last up to 25 years, reaching the top after 10 years from the harvest.
