Qubba from Monteleone comes from the exclusive pre-phylloxera vineyard 'Cuba'. Located at an altitude of 500 meters, near the Alcantara River, these grapes benefit from a growing environment in a cooler microclimate. The manual harvest takes place in the early morning hours, after which the grapes are taken to the cellar in small baskets of 10 kilograms to keep them in optimal condition. The fermentation takes place with carefully selected yeasts under natural conditions. After fermentation, the wine undergoes a maceration period of approximately 12 days, followed by an aging process of 18 months in large wooden barrels of 500 and 700 liters, and finally a bottle aging of 12 months. The bouquet offers characteristic aromas of thyme, violets and cherries. When tasting, the wine first reveals layers of dried cherries and red forest fruits, accompanied by a spicy nuance, and ends with a harmonious balance between tannins and acids. The aftertaste is long-lasting and a true pleasure for the palate. For an optimal experience, serve in a Burgundy glass. We recommend opening and decanting the wine in its younger years half an hour before serving for guaranteed enjoyment. Hello!
