Description

Our Rosso Del Solstizio ® wine is obtained from Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes, grown in the heart of the March of Treviso. After alcoholic fermentation, it is aged in French oak barriques for at least twelve months. The wine, well-bodied, has a complex and balanced nose and is suitable for pairing with red meat, game and mature cheeses.

Why the name “Rosso del Solstizio”?
For a prestigious wine like our Rosso Del Solstizio ®, we needed an equally important name that was significant for the territory and heritage of Nervesa. Let’s go back in time. During the First World War, between the 15th and 23rd June 1918, these places along the banks of the Piave were the background to one of the most violent and bloody battles, “The Battle of the Solstice”. This battle was named by the poet Gabriele D’Annunzio and marked the beginning of the surrender of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the final victory of Italy and her allies.
