"Sito Moresco" - excellent wine with bright fruit flavors and silky tannins. In "Sito Moresco" miraculously united complexity and longevity of Nebbiolo with elegance and maturity of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Wine is good to drink young, but with age it loses its appeal. First vintage "Sito Moresco" was released in 1982. Its name "Sito Moresco" (literally "the place Moresco") wine was named after the previous owner of a vineyard in Padzhore (Treiso). For the production of wine each grape variety is individually fermented in stainless steel tanks for 2 weeks at a constant temperature of 25-27 ° C. Blending is carried out only after the malolactic fermentation. Kept wine 12 months in barriques and 6 more months in the bottle.
