Curtefranca Runcat

Wine name
Curtefranca Rosso D.O.C. “Runcat”.

Grape variety
Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Nebbiolo and Barbera, all cordon trained.

Soil composition
Alluvional morain soil of early origin with a structure of loam and sand sandy and very frequent presence of morain stones.

Vineyard
“Runcat” in the Sala area, in the village of Cazzago San Martino.

Exposure and height
South-western exposure on a slight slope, 250 meters above sea-level.

Grape production
Approximately 55 ql./ha. To arrive at this figure and raise the quality of the grapes, the yield is reduced by about 40% at the end of July.

Harvest timing
Harvest timing depends on the time of best ripening of the different kinds of vines, however all grapes are harvested by the end of October, strictly by hand.

Vinification
After pressing and stripping, maceration takes place in steel recipients with regular temperature between 25 e i 30° C. Maceration duration depends on the year, however never less than 18 days. At this point, the wine ages in small oak barrels for 24 months, after which the wine is blended and put into bottles. Bottle-ageing lasts another six months and completes the wine production, preceding only packaging and sell, which take places approximately 30 months after harvesting.
