Stefen 1624 2015
DOCG Colli di Conegliano
Stèfen is the ancient surname of the De Stefani family, as written in old documents dated 1624. With this wine De Stefani wanted to bring back the old vinification process of the Marzemino. Here grapes are naturally dried, while the wine continues the fermentation process until all of the sugars are transformed into alcohol. This is a very deep ruby color with a garnished hue. It has a full body that is powerful and bold with a heavy texture but is yet still delicate and maintains a low acidity. Intense scents of ripe wild fruit and clear notes of cherry, blackberry, vanilla, and chocolate prevail throughout the wine. The wine has round tannins and a lingering warm finish.
