Tech Sheet

Jassarte is the great red wine that originates from our rediscovery of the ancient use of complantation of different varieties in a vineyard. This wine is not characterized by the individual varieties but rather by the vineyard as a unique identity. It represents the absolute expression of the territory.This wine reminds us of the origin of viticulture and its history, which are between the Mediterranean and the Caucasus, between the West and the East. According to Herodotus, the ideal border between these two worlds, their meeting point, was marked by two rivers, Indus and Jassarte. In the label, from the Etruscan art, there are two small satyrs that are harvesting.

Grapes are harvested in 6-7 times, depending on the maturation period. Produced only in the best vintages, the selected grapes are vinified without correctives or additives which would alter the original characteristics. Refined on the lees for 24 months in oak barrels and almost 12 months in bottle. Not filtrated

Vinified without correctives or additives which would alter the original characteristics of the grapes. Refined on the lees for 12 months in oak barrels (only 10% new) and at least 6 months in bottle.
