Tenuta Belvedere, Coccinea Croatina

Write a Review

100% Croatina coming from a pretty hot vintage giving way to a full bodied red which perfectly reflects the terroir and the vintage with its lively tannins wraped around a core of dark fruit. No added sulphites. Hand harvested grapes are totally destemmed. The must is left to ferment with the skins in concrete vats for about 15 days with daily pump-overs. Then the wine rests for 30 months until bottling, preceded by a single coarse filtration (10 micron). Before being placed on the market, the wine is left in the bottle for about 10/12 months. Sulphites are never used, neither during vinification nor before bottling. The name Coccìnea (accent on the “i”) means red scarlet in Latin. 2.500 bottles produced.
