The wine

The Russolo winery is a small family business dedicated to producing quality wines that have a most pleasant fragrance and minerality. These characteristics result from San Quirino's particularly favourable microclimate, the wide variation in temperatures, the gravel soils typically found in the province of Pordenone, and an intelligent, well-adjusted production process.

Made from Merlot (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon and Refosco, originating from vines over 30 years old, Borgo di Peuma is a singular wine which is made using a technique called "governo" (a process by which, after 12 months of ageing in French oak barrels, the must obtained from the best clusters of newly-harvested, dried-out Cabernet grapes is added to the wine).

The end result of this process, not very dissimilar to the "ripasso" wine-making technique, is a warm and structured wine that is smooth and full-bodied. A deep ruby-red colour, highlights on the nose are its aromas of ripe black fruit (blackberry), leather, tobacco and notes of damp earth and liquorice. On the palate it comes over as full, with a velvety mouthfeel, smooth, mature, with flavoursome and perfectly integrated tannins.
