Croda Ronca, Colli di Conegliano DOCG 2012 Red 6 x 75cl
Merlot, Marzemino Cabernte Franc, Cabernet Sauvingon
In barriques for 36 months. In the bottle a minimum of 10 months. Deep garnet with ruby red highlights. The bouquet is complex, mature, and elegant, where spicy notes of cinnamon and tanned leather predominate, along with fresh hay, tobacco leaf, vanilla, and cocoa powder. Noticeable too are dried plum plus hints of toasted oak and eucalyptus. The palate is full, rich, and elegant, with a well-integrated acidity and tasty fruit; a lengthy progression leads to a dry finish with a pleasantly tannic touch.
About the brand
In the Veneto, amidst the Colli di Conegliano hillslopes, is the Ceschin family winery. Since 1965, Ettore Ceschin, the founder Gisueppes son, has directed the family wine operation with the same calm determination as his father. He gave the winery the name Bepin De Eto, in homage to his father, his family, and his history. The vineyards of the area demand overwhelming dedication and attention, but the Guyot-trained vines enjoy fine exposure, a climate so special as to merit fully two denominations of monitored and limited origin, one ‘’Conegliano Valdobbiadene’’ Prosecco Superiore DOCG, the other ‘’Colli di Conegliano’’ DOCG, both regulated by individual production codes, both true guarantees of high quality. A quality that after harvest must be maintained in the cellar. Here Ettore, assisted by his three daughters, exercises the same relentless commitment in following every single step of the winemaking process.
