MASIERO - URBAN igt veneto rosso 2018

The Masiero Urban 2018 Veneto Rosso IGT is crafted with meticulous attention to the maturation process of its grape varieties. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes are harvested separately, ensuring that each variety reaches its optimal state of ripeness before being processed. This individualized approach to harvesting allows for the unique characteristics of each grape type to be preserved and expressed in the final blend.Once harvested, the grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation in wooden barrels. This natural fermentation process is key to developing the wine's complex flavor profile. During fermentation, the grapes remain in contact with their skins for an extended period of 30 to 40 days. This extended maceration allows for a greater extraction of color, tannins, and aromas, contributing to the wine's structure and depth.After fermentation, the wine is transferred to large natural cement tanks for maturation and aging.

These tanks are non-vitrified, a choice that can influence the wine's development by allowing for micro-oxygenation, which can soften tannins and enhance the wine's texture. The use of natural cement tanks is a traditional method that can impart a unique character to the wine.In keeping with a philosophy of minimal intervention, the Masiero Urban 2018 is not subjected to clarification or filtration before bottling. This approach can help to preserve the wine's natural flavors and aromas, resulting in a more authentic expression of the grape varieties and the terroir from which they come. The absence of these processes means that the wine may contain natural sediment, which is often considered a sign of quality and traditional winemaking practices.
