Production area

The name "448 s.l.m." refers to the geographical positioning of the historical farmstead of Cantina Girlan, which is located at an altitude of 448 m above sea level. The wine is a blend of the three most important grape varieties of our growing area. Here, the soils are rich in minerals, the result of ice age sedimentation.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to  prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Destemming and slow must fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Malolatic fermentation and aging in concrete vats.

Tasting notes & food matching

With this wine we want to express the typical nature of the red wines from our production area. This red wine is the combination of the lightness and of the Schiava, the  pleasant fruity richness of the Pinot Noir and the velvety and quite full-bodied bouquet of the Lagrein.  This is a wine that goes well with grilled and roast meats, game and spicy cheeses.
