Inama Azienda Agricola Riserva Oratorio Di San Lorenzo
The area of the Oratorio di San Lorenzo is a small valley surrounded by an unspoilt nature, a mystic place where monks lived in the past.
The first vintage of this wine, 2004, expresses already what was expected: the uniqueness of a grape (100% Carmenere) that in the Colli Berici produces emotions which cannot be repeated elsewhere.
The Carmenere has a unique story to tell: Inama's most exclusive wine to present to customers. In 2009, Inama launched the new DOC: “COLLI BERICI D.O.C. CARMENERE RISERVA” with the label Oratorio di San Lorenzo: Inama is the only winery to have a unique project on the Carmenere in Europe.
The grapes, dried slightly on the plant, bequeath a deep, almost opaque, carmine red colour and concentrated nose of black fruit, cocoa, pepper and soy. Authoritative in the mouth, it shows superb balance with ripe tannins and a round, generous finish of rare length.
Grape variety: 100% Carmenere.
Vinification: Maceration and fermentation for 14 days in upright stainless fermentors with selected yeasts. Malo in tank, then racked into 50% new and 50% one year French oak barriques. Matured for 18 months in wood before a light filtration and bottling. The wine spends a further 12 months in bottle before release.
Best served with: Polenta and sopressa vicentina D.O.P., grilled or smoked pork.
