Bonarda from Oltrepò Pavese DOC (Denomination of Controlled Origin)(Lively)
“Il Cassino” is produced in San Damiano al Colle and Montù Beccaria.
The vineyards are on the hills exposed to the sun at an altitude that goes from 250 to 300 metres on the level of the sea.
After the pressing, a month lasting maceration is made.
The wine is left in steel tanks for some months and then it is bottled.
It’s ruby-red coloured, to the sense of smell it’s fruity, with the typical cherry and marasca’s scents, with a light floral scent.
It’s quite structured and tannic, the sourness is controlled and balanced by a good softness.
