Obardi Blend IGP- Corte Quaiara

OBARDI IGP CORTE QUAIARA- VINTAGE 2013

The balanced nature of the 2013 vintage made possible the creation of this unique blend. All the grapes were vinified together in a single fermentation so as to obtain a unique and complex wine. Organoleptic properties: Intense ruby red colour with garnet reflections with aging, of good intensity. The aroma includes various hints of ripe red, mainly underbrush, fruit, flowers and minerals alternating with elegant spices and liquorice. A final note of tobacco, cinnamon, nutmeg, closing with a balanced and enveloping tannin.

The label represents the hat, the indelible symbol of the farmer Antonio Obardi, who cultivated the vineyards of Corte Quaiara with love.

ABOUT CORTE QUAIARA:

“Wines that are out of the ordinary”; that’s how the Corte Quaiara wines are: out-of- the-box!

Some of the grape varieties that Giovanni Montresor- the winemaker- grows are unusual for the production zone in which he happens to be, but here in this area called Moreniche Hills, they benefit from an ideal habitat. Each one of his wines has a precise significance for him; it is the result of a choice that he continues to make, vintage after vintage, and this gives he the courage and enthusiasm to persevere in his work, which – every day – helps he grow, as a man and as a winemaker.

The soil in which his vines sink their roots is of glacial origin. At one time, the whole of this zone was covered in water, which solidified and then melted during the great glaciations that took place several millennia ago. The legacy that the Ice Age has left us is an extremely complex terrain, which is very rich in minerals but rather lacking in nutrients: it is a type of soil that forces the vines to give of their best, and at the same time imbues all of my wines with a marked tanginess, reminiscent of the sea that lay here thousands of years ago.
