Harvest and Vinification Notes
The Cabernet grapes are hand-picked during the first two weeks of October. First they are pressed, then they undergo a crushing process for ten days in order to extract the colors, aromas, and tannins. The wine is aged in two different styles: for eight to ten months, half of the wine rests in steel tanks while the other half resides in French oak barrels. After this period of separation, they are blended and then bottled together.
Lison Classico DOCG Area
Far from the hectic city life, the Estate vineyards are cradled in the remote Venetian countryside, in proximity of the historic town of Annone Veneto. Our selected Polvaro Tenuta grapes are grown in the Lison Classico D.O.C.G. zone, the oldest and most genuine area in the whole Lison region. This area, which spans less than 10 miles (16 km) from east to west and occupies the very western edge of the wider Lison area, is one of the most suitable areas of Veneto for grapevine cultivation.
