Rosso del Camul Cabernet Sauvignon & Pinot Noir 2012


The Winery
The winery was founded by Pietro Tonon in 1936 and the Tonon family have handed down his techniques through a good three generations. The name Camúl originates from a small piece of land situated in the hilly area of Carpesica, not far from Vittorio Veneto (in the province of Treviso) where the original family cultivated the very best of its wine production from the early 1900s. The winery has been able to retain the excellent levels of quality achieved in the past and, at the same time, continuously make progress by improving production techniques with the new and enjoyable sensations that they bring.
Today Camúl wines, enhanced with a modern twist by Loris Tonon and his staff, still embody the excellence of the company while creating a fine niche wine. The company is part of the consortium for the protection of Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene D.O.C.G . The three key words that mark our Camúl line: Tradition: the Tonon family have continued to be faithful to Pietro Tonon’s techniques through three generations. Respect:the winery shares and preserves the strong values entrenched in the land: winemaking excellence is obtained through constant research, careful attention to the vines, selections made at harvest time and continuous monitoring of the entire production system. All in the name of tradition and care. Quality: the process concludes with a stringent analytical gustatory test aimed to certify the wine properties and characteristics before it goes to market.
The Sommelier notes:
[x] 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Pinot Nero made with single-variety vinification.
The low yield per hectare (80-90 quintals grape, 60-65% wine) guarantees high standards of quality for both wines.
[x] Stony soil along the river Piave, between Conegliano and Treviso.
[x] “In rosso”, the must stays in contact with skins for about 15 days and it is then stored in special tanks for 10 more days at a temperature of 25-27 °C.
[x] Pinot Nero and Cabernet Sauvignon mature separately in Slavonian oak barrels for about 18/24 months. They are then bottled together and the wine refines in the bottle for
6/8 months. A group of experts tastes the wine thus obtained before it is put on sale.
