The blend of vines (clonal selection) used to produce Erasmo were specially selected to match the climate and soil of Caliboro and were imported exclusively from France for the purpose.
This area was chosen because it allows dry farming and the intense luminosity insures a greater content of antioxidants.
Fermentation in stainless steel with no added yeast and long maceration. Mallolactic fermentation took place in wood. The wine is unfiltered to preserve all its quality and might present precipitations.
Eighteen months of barrique aging, all French oak.
Harvest by hand took place between March 13 and May 17.
Bottled on January 25, 2012.
Intense, elegant and crisp red berries. Balsamic and earthy fragrances matching the vanilla from the wood.
The palate is very elegant with velvety and rich tannins blending with lively acidity. Excellent balance and very fine style.
Dark ruby red.
Serve Erasmo with meat, meat pies, game or wild boar cooked on an open fire. Generally with full flavored main courses.
