For Dourthe N°1 red, the remarkable task of seeking out the finest terroirs is also undertaken in the extensive red Bordeaux vineyard to pinpoint exactly those areas where Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon have the best chance of reaching full maturity. Forging strong partnerships with growers guarantees optimal and consistent fruit quality. From tending the vine all the way through to the harvest, the growers work in close collaboration with the Dourthe winemakers. The finest batches of Dourthe N°1 mature 12 months in new French oak barriques where the tannins from oak integrate harmoniously with those present in the wine, adding roundness, balance and aromatic complexity.
- Intense garnet red in appearance Wonderfully seductive on the nose, it unleashes red and black berry fruit aromas, enhanced with a hint of delicately spicy oak. Initially supple on the attack, the wine is rounded on the palate, and the aromas evolve harmoniously against the beautifully balanced tannic structure. The wine finishes long on a long, flavoursome and slightly smoky note.
Viticulture and vinification began with Leonildo, a doctor in the small town of Soave, who, driven by his understanding of biology and chemistry began working in the family vineyards and cellars.
His sons, Fausto and Gustavo continued his work with great passion, but the turning point for the estate came with Leonildo, grandson of the founder who, with the force of his sense of vocation, carved out his own style. A belief in the central importance of the vine, an unceasing pursuit of quality and innovative winemaking processes are the key charactestics of the Pieropan identity.
