Dogaia

Vintage : 2014
Type: Rosso del Ticino DOC

Varietal composition: 65 % Gamaret (Gamay and Reichensteiner), 35 % Merlot

Vinification: Vinification in the bordelaise style with a maceration period of 9 - 14 days in stainless-steel tanks maintained at a temperature of 28 - 32°C. The greater part (60 %) of the wine matured in barriques of new French oak, while 40 % was placed in one-year old barriques, all for over 13 months. The two varietal compositions are vinified separately and assembled just before bottling. Frequent racking from the lees allows the wine to be bottled without fining, filtration or other physical stabilization. This may result in a slight sediment in the bottle.

Alcohol content: 12.8 % Vol.

Color: Deep and intense bordeaux red with violet flashes.

Bouquet: Very intense, and complex, with smells of red and black-berries. Nuances of herbs (lavender), accompanied by roasted notes of tobacco and menthol tones.

Palate: Fresh and fruity. Elegant, with a good structure and soft tannins of
perfect quality and strength. Persistent and balanced at the finish with liquorice notes.

Dining choices: Finds its best match with leg of lamb, hearty meats and well-ripened cheeses.

Serving temperature: 16 – 18° C

Aging: The Dogaia 2014 will reach its full expressive potential beginning in autumn 2016 and will continue to develop in character through 2025 and beyond if properly cellared.

Packaging: 75 cl. in cartons of 6 bottles
