One of the finest expressions of this particular blend, as specified in the Colli di Conegliano D.O.C.G. production code. The union of the classic Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot) with Marzemino brings to this distinctive wine its superb, refreshing crispness and its intriguing, complex structure.

Its dense, garnet-veined ruby colour finds its complement in the rich, pulpy fruit on the nose, where intense notes of wild dark berry fruit and dried plum are backgrounded by still-evolving spice and pungent hints of balsam. In the mouth, the tannins and velvety mouthfeel work in harmony with each other, resulting in a wine of notable drinkability and pleasure.
How to enjoy it
Its crispness, fine tannins, and rounded mouthfeel make Vinciguerra the perfect partner to grilled meats, roast kid and lamb, and it accompanies medium- and long-aged cheeses as well. Best enjoyed at 16-18°C.
