Wine tasting advice

Intense Garnet Red.
Sweet aromas of ripe fruit—plums, black cherry, marasquin, fruit liqueur. Spicy, undergrowth and licorice notes.
Elegant, complex, structured, dry, velvety tannins. Beautiful acid column, highlighting the aromas of wild berry jam and spices.

Vinification

Maceration of 8–10 days with port. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks. 36 months ageing in barrels.

Terroir

Hilly terrain on “ponca” soil, the Friulan name given to the alternation of marls and sandstones, with a variable percentage of limestone and clay. The succession of hot breezes from the Adriatic Sea (less than 30 km off the road), and from La Bora and other cold winds blowing from the north/north-east, generate large temperature differences, giving the wines their intensity, structure and elegance. These are crucial factors for successful ageing.

Le vigneron

Today, the Ermacora winery tells the story of a quartet composed of two brothers (Dario and Luciano, whose initials intermingle on the labels of their wines) and two cousins.

A family of outsized kindness, committed to producing wines of extreme elegance.

Fourth generation of winemakers since the foundation of the domain by their grandfather Antonio in 1922, the team is preparing enthusiastically for the 100th grape harvest.
