In our estate, which covers an area of 280 hectars in the municipality of Montecchio, we have singled out and selected a plot having the ideal characteristics as to exposure and composition of the soil for the production of a great unblended Cabernet Sauvignon. The techniques in the vineyard and the green harvest are focused on reducing the production of grapes to 0,6/0,8 kilos per vine. The grapes are selected one by one by experienced pickers before starting the vinification. During this process 20% of the must is extracted and the rest goes through a long maceration which extends beyond the fermentation itself. The distinctive features of Cabernet Sauvignon are clearly expressed especially when every single aspect, soil, climate and technology, helps enhancing them. The wine has a deep colour, a complex and warm bouquet with hints of ripe blackberries. Its taste is ample and spicy with assertive yet graceful tannins.

Accordingly, Marciliano is a classic blend of estate-grown Cabernets. To achieve extraordinary depth and concentration, the juice undergoes a lengthy period of maceration followed by sixteen months in French and American oak resulting in exquisite complexity and refinement. The final wine is one of the greatest expressions of central Italian Cabernet.
