Solèr Rosso Veneto IGT
Solèr is a Venetian blend produced by De Stefani winery and obtained from 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Carmenere, 20% Refosco and 20% Marzemino grapes. "Solèr" is a word coming from Venetian dialect that means "granary", the place where winemakers used to leave to dry the best grapes. Recalling this ancient tradition, part of the grapes that make up this wine is dried, obtaining great softness with notes of licorice.
After the harvest, between the end of September and the beginning of October, Marzemino and Refosco are dried, while the remaining part follows a classical vinification at controlled temperature. Then the dried grapes are destemmed and crushed, the fermentation will occur in special vessels at controlled temperature. Then the wine refines for 12 months in barrique, followed by an additional 12 months refining in bottle.
Solèr has a deep ruby red colour. Intense scents of ripe fruit, prunes, violet, with ethereal and spicy notes; full body, very important structure, with layers of silky tannins and a complex bouquet. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C. Its structure and complexity enable the wine to improve during maturation in the bottle, which can last up to 15 years, reaching the top after 10 years from the vintage.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
De Stefani's Solèr is an excellent red wine to pair with stuffed pasta, BBQs, stew and cold cuts.
