Piave, Venezia

The Winery
The company, established in 1936 by Pietro Tonon, follows his important teachings: constant research, great attention to the vineyards, vintage selection and careful processing to take wine to the tasting. Today this is backed by technological innovations with respect to tradition and the product. The ageing and maturation of our best wines take place in small oak casks. Our company belongs to the association for the protection of Conegliano Valdobbiadene D.O.C.G. since its foundation. From the heart of Conegliano Valdobbiadene D.O.C.G. land: the production zone includes a territory comprising 15 communes. The vines are grown only on the sunniest part of the hills, at a height between 50 and 500 metres above sea level. In order to protect the excellence of this heritage donated to man by nature, in 2010 the appellation D.O.C. has been upgraded to D.O.C.G., a guarantee of prime quality for each bottle.
The Sommelier notes:
[x] 100% Cabernet Franc. Robust vine with inconstant production.
[x] Manual harvest. Fermentation: the must is in contact with the skins for about 10/12 days at a temperature of 28/30°C to facilitate the dissolution of colouring substances and tannins in the grape skins.
[x] Stored in stainless steel tanks, followed by 10/12 months light maturation in oak casks
and ageing in bottle
[x] Intense red colour with light garnet nuances. Well-balanced body with herbaceous
aroma of wild fruits. The ageing increases its personality.
