2015 Bolgheri DOC Rosso - Rute
RUTE derives from the word “red” in Etruscan language. The Etruscans were the first civilization of our territory and first winegrowers. It is well know that Bolgheri was a very difficult, harsh, and wasteland for centuries.
The selected Cabernet Sauvignon (primary component), Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes from homogeneous vineyard parcels, were each harvested and fermented separately. Aging took place for 1 year in used oak barrels, on the lees, with weekly stirring; clarified with some racking, it was not filtered; then a futher one year aging in bottle.
Suggested serving it at 18°C (64°F); waiting for some time after uncorking. It is excellent in pairing with intensely flavourful food. The wine will reward cellaring.
