COLLI BERICI D.O.C. CARMENERE

Type | red

Grapes | carmenere 100%

Impressions

Vivid ruby core with a narrow purple rim. Intense on the nose, with herbs and spices, black fruit, tannins are soft and balanced. Charming.

The wine

At the Oratorio di San Lorenzo, our Carmenere vines eventually became 15 years old. Due to the meticulous attention in the vineyards, consistent improvements and other goals achieved along the way, we were able to upgrade these sites alongside those that produce our most important label: “ORATORIO di SAN LORENZO Carmenere Riserva DOC Colli Berici”.

This allowed us to introduce a second wine: “CARMINIUMCarmenere DOC Colli Berici”. It represents a more immediate appreciation of a pure Carmenere, without omitting complexity and elegance. The expression of this unique wine was created by the clays, formed by the landscape of this incredible place, which has almost been kept in its natural state.

Label

When you arrive at the Oratorio di San Lorenzo vineyard, you feel a sense of peace that takes you back to the past.
The beauty of this place is breathtaking. Right in the center of the 12-hectare vineyard, an old mulberry tree stands serene.
During the autumn, the scenery in the vineyard is absolutely magnificent: the Carmenere leaves take on a red hue, while those of the mulberry tree are tinged with yellow.
On the Carminium label the tree is red like the leaves of the vines, thus becoming a symbol for the vineyard itself.
