Vigneti delle Dolomiti Rosso Riserva IGT “Fratagranda” 2013 – Pravis
Intense, deep purple red color, with immediately enveloping aromas, herbaceous, with nuances of spices and mountain cedar. On the palate it is full and powerful, with well blended tannins, soft and a pleasant, inviting acidity, which enhances its entire structure.
The Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot of the Vigneti delle Dolomiti Rosso Riserva Fratagranda Pravis are grown in the Fratagranda vineyard at an altitude of 240 meters on a silt alluvial soil with south-west exposure. The harvest is manual in boxes with selection in the vineyard and takes place only in the best years. The Vigneti delle Dolomiti Rosso Riserva IGT “Fratagranda” Pravis is mainly composed of Cabernet Sauvignon and is the result of a maturation of over a year in small wooden barrels and a refinement in glass for 6 months.
The Pravis winery is completely excavated underground and rises into sight, completely surrounded by calcareous rocks and exposed to the sun and the wind that warms our entire valley.
Seated at the foot of Castel Madruzzo, Pravis winery is intended to be a new and simple symbol of the hardworking peasant culture, a symbol of the territory, to sanctify the identity of the community but above all of our philosophy of producing wines.
Every phase of the process of transforming grapes into wine at Pravis respects a natural idea of winemaking. Using the least technology possible: our grapes, once pressed, flow with gravity into fermentation tanks, then into barrels, then finally into containers for pre-bottling with patience allowing the natural elements of the wine to aid our intuition in the winery.
