Cabernet Sauvignon Lafòa 2016
Cabernet Sauvignon Lafòa takes its name from the pilot vineyard which marked the turning point in the production of Colterenzio wines. A jewel among South Tyrolean wines that embodies the passion and quality of workmanship in the cellar. Dark red color with purple reflections, an intense bouquet of black currant, bitter chocolate, marzipan and vanilla. On the palate it's rich and structured as a great classic.
The recent history of the Colterenzio Winery is made up of rebels and pioneers of winemakers who in 1960, initially 26, started their own agricultural cooperative to market the wine independently. So it was that in the small village of Schreckbichl (in Italian Colterenzio) in South Tyrol, the winery of the same name was born with the then ambitious and pioneering goal of producing quality wine. In 1979 the enlightened viticulturist Luis Raifer took over in the role of director who, recognizing the qualities of the land, the climate, the terroir and the local wine competence, recognized his potential in producing wines of excellence, bringing South Tyrol to levels until then unexpected. With this clear and well-defined vision, he began to give life to his project on his farm "Lafòa" on a charming sun-kissed hill, where he replaced the Schiava vines with the Cabernet Sauvignon and later Sauvignon Blanc varieties. But he did not limit himself to this, but rather introduced a new method of viticulture which favored the low yield compared to the high quality of the grapes destined for great wines. This methodology prevailed within the entire cooperative, experimenting with new varieties but preserving the method, particularly accurate in the vineyard and in the cellar. After 40 years from that turning point, from 26 founding winemakers members today they have become 300, who with their families, who for passion and for work, contribute every year, autumn after autumn to the success of the great Colterenzio wines.
Cabernet Sauvignon Lafòa comes from the historic hill farm at 430 above sea level, with excellent exposure and sandy and gravelly soils. It ferments on the skins for 10 days, after which it follows the careful mixing of the hat and a subsequent maturation of 10-14 days, before being decanted into oak barriques where the malolactic fermentation takes place and refines for 18 months. A wine with great aging potential between 10 and 15 years, with full tannins and great persistence. Ideal with red meats, game and aged cheese.
