A rare wine.
A red wine.
Self-contained. Generous. Giving. Great personality! A wine for special if not unique occasions.
A wine to treasure and keep, and in time, rediscover. A blend full of character, which envelops with aromas of spicy tobacco, dried prunes and figs, coffee, cocoa beans, and dried fruit, and finally a back note of very ripe red berries. Andritz Rosso guards the dreams and identity of its land: it is the history, the travels, family clans and great stories. Definitely made to be remembered. Perhaps this is why it is unforgettable!
Andritz in Styria in the southeast of Austria, is the native place from where, over a century ago, our forefathers came to set roots in the Collio.

The grapes are de-stemmed and are left to macerate for a long time. During this period, fermentation is assisted by regular remontage, delestage and air mixing. Once racked, the wine ages for several months before being bottled. The wine ages in the bottle for at least 2 years before being released.
Refined, elegant, spicy, mineral, complex, authoritative. Deep ruby red color with purple tints. The nose offers a warm, enveloping panoply of aromas ranging from ripe red berries to leather and spices passing through dried fruit and liquorice. In the mouth it is complex, pronounced and harmonious. Notes of blueberry, plum, dried figs, coffee and cacao can be perceived.
Braised veal shank, roast lamb, charcoal-grilled meats and liver, are but a few of the many dishes this great blend can nicely complement.
