The Gortmarin of the Borgo San Daniele winery is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. This wine as been called Gortmarin to honor the name of the land on which the vineyards of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon have been planted over forty years ago. These are grapes that await the late autumn for a late harvest. This is definitely a perfect wine for small and large meditations.
The grapes from a late harvest which is strictly manual, are wine made in red. Fermentation is in contact with the skins and lasts 20-25 days. When the fermentation has not yet finished, the wine is moved into barriques which are for one third new and for the remaining two thirds of the second and third passage.
Ruby red with violet reflections. The aroma is elegant with pleasant notes of red fruit that intertwine well with balsamic hints and puffs of dried flowers. Soft and well balanced on the palate, excellent correspondence between aromas and flavor. Persistent.
Excellent with tasty red meats, however, it is perfect as a meditation wine.
