Intense bright purple colour. Pronounced nose of wild berries, Amarena cherry, cloves and cinnamon. On palate the wine has a nice satin feel despite having plenty of tannin. The dynamic freshness offers a fascinating tension that keeps this fleshy wine lively through the finish.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Azienda Agricola Il Paratino

Dieses Gut in der Nähe von Bolgheri in der Toscana wurde San Patrignano vor einiger Zeit von einem Spender geschenkt. Für die meisten unserer Kundinnen und Kunden ist San Patrignano in der Emilia-Romagna ein Begriff. Einzigartig auf der Welt, bietet San Patrignano seit über 30 Jahren jungen Menschen, die durch Drogenkonsum jegliche Orientierung verloren haben, die Möglichkeit, eine neue Perspektive in ihrem Leben zu finden und eine Ausbildung zu absolvieren. Die Azienda Il Paratino in der Toscana ist sozusagen ein kleiner Ableger, der eine ähnliche Funktion ausübt. Hier werden Wein und ein hervorragendes, fruchtiges Olivenöl erzeugt. Wie in San Patrignano ist auch in der Azienda Il Paratino Riccardo Cotarella für den Wein verantwortlich. Er ist einer der angesehensten Önologen Italiens und ein international gefragter Berater. Die 7 Hektaren Weinberge sind noch relativ jung, aber unter Cotarellas Obhut entstehen bereits beachtliche und vielschichtige Weine. Wie in San Patrignano wird mit biologischen Anbaumethoden gearbeitet und eine Zertifizierung zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt angestrebt. Das Klima ist mediterran und eher mild unter dem Einfluss des nur 6 Kilometer entfernten Meeres. Die kalkhaltigen Lehmböden eignen sich hervorragend für den Cabernet Franc und den Cabernet Sauvignon. Das Geheimnis der Qualität der Weine aus San Patrignano und Il Paratino dürfte aber nicht ganz allein bei Riccardo Cotarella, sondern wohl auch bei den Menschen liegen, die ihrer Arbeit unter besonderen Umständen mit viel Hingebung nachgehen.

Grape varieties

Cabernet Sauvignon

The backbone of Bordeaux

The Cabernet Sauvignon gives the Bordeaux its backbone, yielding deep violet wines with powerful tannins and endless ripening potential. It is the top dog in Médoc, and is placed in all five premier crus of Bordelais. When young, it often appears strict and unapproachable, but with advancing years, its tannins round off. It is wonderfully velvety, and yet always maintains its freshness. Typical flavours include cassis, graphite and cedar. Wherever Cabernet Sauvignon is found, Merlot is not far away. It complements the robust structure of Cabernet with softness, fruit and richness. The Cabernet Sauvignon is the most-exported vine in the world. It delivers persuasive qualities in Italy as an ingredient of the Super Tuscan, or as the flagship variety from California. There, it is lovingly titled “Cab Sauv”. Meat fans should be aware that it fantastically accompanies a grilled entrecôte. The family tree of Cabernet Sauvignon is surprising: its parents are Cabernet Franc and the white Sauvignon blanc.

Cabernet Franc

Forefather of the Bordeaux varieties

The Cabernet Franc is one of the oldest varieties of Bordelais and a parent of three other red grapes in the Bordeaux assortment: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenère. It is distinguished by its complex, flavourful bouquet of raspberry, graphite, violet, liquorice and white pepper. In addition, it presents round, crisp tannins which turn out less strongly than those of Cabernet Sauvignon. While the Cabernet Franc always appears as part of a blend in Bordeaux, it is pressed alone on the Loire. The most renowned appellations are Chinon and Bourgueil. Incidentally, the Cabernet originates not in Bordeaux but in the Spanish Basque Country. Cabernet owes its name to the Latin “carbon”, meaning black.
