In stock

The winemaking region of Oltrepo Pavese in Lombardia is known to produce highly acclaimed red wines the endemic Croatina (Also known as Bonarda) variety is cultivated and produced to perfection here. Alziati Winery is known within connoisseurs circles to be at the pinnacle of this elite group, for saving no efforts or resources in maintaining excellence across their portfolio. This is their “Riserva”, a title kept for the best. This 2005 vintage is made from a traditional 90% Croatian and 10% Uva Rara (rare grape) and is now perfect to drink (however can be aged further). You can expect a mild but developed nose of ripe red and blackberries, nutty, cedary and spicy oak notes that lead to a wide palate, voluminous, dry and mineral, full of tart fruit with a mild touch of spice. Fine, fully melted tannins and good tension throughout. Long and persistent finish. Amazing.

INFO ON GROWER

Segnore Alziati is a methodic man who manages all of the winemaking aspects in his winery. There are no secrets behind his delicious wines – He carefully selects the best vineyard plots in the heart of Oltrepo Pavese in Lombardia, close to Milan. The vineyards are cultivated in the traditional way, fully respecting their potential by letting nature take its course without artificial or invasive interventions. The yields are low due to the age of the vines, the short pruning, the absence of fertilization, the spontaneous grassing and the respect for the harvesting and processing times. Only the best vintages are vinified. Of course, with the exclusion of any oenological additives, which results in high-quality wines that truly express their potential and quality of work done to achieve them.
