Process/Vinification Process
Crushed and de-stemmed grapes are left to the maceration process for 7-10 days in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. When the primary fermentation is completed the wine is then decanted a few times to initiate malolactic fermentation. The wine is then decanted again to clear it of impurities and then transferred to steel vats where it is then aged for 8-10 months to sharpen and hone its flavour

13%-13.5% volume depending on the climate of the year

This wine exhibits a clear and bright ruby red colour, becoming crimson with age

Floral notes of rose and violet play upon rich forest fruits

The many grapes of Rouge de Lissart combine to create a unique and elegant experience which softens with age retaining its intense yet delicate velvety berry tones

For optimum preservation it is recommended to keep this wine at a constant temperature of between 12 and 18 degrees Celsius. This wine matures well and is best enjoyed within three to four years of bottling

This wine is available in boxes of 6 or 12 bottles of 0.750 ml

Rouge de Lissart is a versatile wine that can accompany many meals. It is especially good with antipasti and pasta dishes, particularly anything traditional from the Piemontese kitchen. The more mature bottle is best paired with richer meat based dishes as it lifts the heavier and more hearty of meals.
