Tasting Notes

Masottina is a family-run company on the sunny hills of Conegliano, based in Castello di Roganzuolo. It produces a wide range of wines typical of the province of Treviso, by using grapes from its own vineyards and sourcing grapes grown in the best areas. Here they produce one of Italy’s best wines, the Prosecco of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene DOC, as well the red and white Colli di Conegliano DOC.

Masottina’s production facilities are modern, yet at every step in the production process they pay respect to old traditions. Mature grapes are hand harvested and vinified with as little impact to the grapes as possible. The most prestigious red wines are matured in French oak barriques.

Made from 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in Masottina’s own vineyards on the famous Piave plain of the Veneto region.
Following high temperature maceration for 10-12 days, to promote maximum extraction of the colour and fruit flavours, the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the wine’s freshness. Oak barrels (Slavonian and French oak) were used to mature the wine for a few months however and most of the body, tannins, and flavour comes from the natural richness of the grapes.

Our tasting note: Medium deep ruby red colour with purple highlights; this medium-bodied wine has aromas and flavours of lush red fruits – cherry, blackberry, and raspberry – with slight floral (violets) and woodsy notes. On the finish, the wine is round and full, good acidity, with well-integrated tannins.

Menu Matches: A great wine to sip on its own, this wine will also complement medium- to full-bodied dishes, particularly meat dishes. Try also with firm cheeses or even recommend with chocolate desserts.
