The Cabernet “Istrice” impresses with an intense ruby red color and stimulating fruit aromas - red forest berries and heart cherries - on the nose, as well as the seductive spiciness of white pepper and chocolate. On the palate, the wine surprises with a refreshing fullness and structure, with elegant, precise tannins and density, as well as a long, juicy finish. 

Grape variety: 
Cabernet Sauvignon e Cabernet Franc - South Tyrol Alto Adige DOC. 

Production area: 
Vigna "Castel Ringberg", cru vineyard in the hills overlooking Lake Caldaro, in the "Castel Ringberg" estate, in the municipality of Kaltern/Caldaro between 330 and 400 meters above sea level, facing south-east. Vigna “Castel Ringberg” also boasts a multiplicity of soils: the higher perches, climbing into the “Mendel” ridge of the Dolomites, are of 30,000 year old glacial Adige River gravel, while calcareous soils with morainic substrata join loose limestone in gentler lower zones. The moderating influence of the lake and the strong afternoon drying southerly wind known as “Ora” also contribute to the balanced, elegant character of the wines. 

Traditional must fermentation for approximately 10 days in stainless steel tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation in large oak vats. The final wine matures for 12 months in French oak barriques and is being bottle-aged for several months before being released. 

Food Pairing: 
It is recommended with red meat, venison, game and cheese. 

Serving temperature: 
16 - 18°C. 

Ageing potential: 
5 - 10 years. 

Bottle to: 
750 ml - 75 cl - 0.75 liters. 

Wine can contain sulphites.
