Montepirolo Rubicone Igt 2000 75 cl San Patrignano


Montepirolo - DOC Colli di Rimini Cabernet San Patrignano’s greatest challenge. With Montepirolo we hope to measure our wines against the world’s greatest. Our grapes, blended with classic Bordelaise among others, let the fruits of our region shine - a product of absolute quality Grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc. Vineyards Twenty-five hectares on the hill of Montepirolo form a single vineyard, with a mainly eastern exposure, where the guyot and spur pruned cordon training systems are used. Montepirolo is made from a selection of the best grapes from these 25 hectares, which give an average yield of 5500 kg/hectare Harvest Merlot is harvested in early September, Cabernet in late September/early October. The grapes are picked by hand, placed in small crates, taken immediately to the cellar and transferred to a conveyor belt for hand-sorting Wine-making Montepirolo is the result of a well-balanced assemblage of the wine from three grape varieties vinified separately. The skin maceration time will vary depending on vintage characteristics, thus intensifying the wine’s aromas. After racking-off, the wine is transferred to barrique where the assemblage takes place.
