Castello di Gussago Pomaro Curtefranca rosso DOC

Tasting notes

Color

intense, almost impenetrable ruby red nuances, which shows great depth of colour.

Bouquet

complex and evolved aromas, scents of wild berries, especially of the forest floor, morello cherries and cherries in eau de vie. Floral and slightly grassy notes, delicately spiced with pleasant sensations of tobacco, liquorice and vanilla.

Food pairing

recommended with dishes of red meat, in particular roasts and game, medium and very mature cheeses.

Description

Podere Pomaro sits on a picturesque hill at the foot of the Barbisone hill. The vines are planted in a clay soil with a rich skeleton and face south to maximise the beneficial effects of the sun. A harmonious mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon,Cabernet Franc and the special Cabernet Carmenère grape.
The grapes are harvested, by hand, often in late autumn. During fermentation there is lengthy maceration on the skins: after drawing off the lees, the wine is aged in oak barriques for about 12 months, which is then followed by further ageing in the bottle for a few months.

This is an ORGANIC certified product

We only use organic farming. In fact, we do not treat our crops with synthetic molecules but only substances of natural origin. We do not use phosphate mineral fertilisers, but only organic compost, if necessary, which provides organic matter for the soil. Furthermore, we do not weed chemically but use mechanical means under the rows, a more expensive practice which is better for the soil. Lastly, we do not use synthetic fungicide but only copper and sulphur, in controlled and ever decreasing doses.
