The second Sansonina red wine, made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc vineyards, is the expression of the enormous potential that the extraordinary terroir of Lake Garda (where normally white grapes are planted) can also express with red varieties.
A Garda red, with its characteristic complexity of the important international varieties involved; easy to drink, fresh, fine and elegant.
Tribute to femininity, even its name evokes the symbol of genesis, the origin of the world and the star that represents the feminine world: “Eve” and “Luna”, creative forces, mystery and inspiration, direct link between the earth and the sky.
Colors: deep ruby red
Nose: enveloping sensations of fresh red fruit, such as blackcurrants, raspberries and blackberries, and spicy notes of liquorice and pepper
Palate: a wine with a strong flavour, due to the clay soil south of Lake Garda, full-bodied and harmonious, wrapped in pleasurable hints of herbs
Grape variety: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc
Ageing: at the end of fermentation, the new wine, a blend of 65% C. Sauvignon and 35% C. Franc, is decanted into a steel tank, where malolactic fermentation and fining occurs before bottling
Food suggestions: the ideal accompaiment to a wide range of dishes, including game, grilled meat and mature cheeses
