Wine Maker Notes
As soon as the wine has just matured its colour is a deep ruby-red with violet tints. As it ages the colours are more vivid with orange shades. The scents are fruity and floral and the taste is warm, dry and full bodied. The wine has a long and soft persistence of withered fruits and flowers, jam and liquorice root which is gently bitter. The minimum overall alcoholic content is 12 °C. Optimal age: after three years the wine attains perfect ripening with features of refined and velvet softness. The wine produced in special vintages can be tasted also after five years. However it is possible to drink the wine from the 1 of November in the year following the vintage.
The Crinale Cellar stems from the experience of the Quitadamo family in the field of viticultural growing and the marketing of wine grapes in the whole of Italy. The family tradition in this area starts in the Seventies-Eighties with the sale of wine-grapes in their Lombard wholesale shop specialized in selling fruit and goes on in the Nineties with the experience in the field taking care of their grapevines.??Today, beginning from this proved experience, the Quitadamo family feels the need to form a structure of wine-making where it is possible to carry out the experience and the knowledge acquired in the grape-growing and wine-making.
The Crinale Cellar is founded in 2006 summer just from the wish to realize a ten-year passion: to devote oneself to a production of his own of excellent wines based on an in-depth knowledge of this typology of growing and also of the grapes and their particular times. The care and the passion that the Quitadamo family puts in each different activity which carries out are also clear in the wine production. All the activities are joined by the interest towards the naturalness and the real production genuineness.
