Maculan, Family Winemakers in Breganze For three generations the Maculan family has been selecting and vinifying the best grapes in Breganze, an enchanting village, set like a small jewel at the foot of the Alps in the Veneto region. The high plains of Asiago offer natural protection and create an extremely mild climate that favors the cultivation of vines and olives. It isn't a coincidence that in the 500s, the Venetian nobility already preferred to spend their summers in this area, sojourning in the splendid villas perfectly designed by the great architect, Andrea Palladio. The Maculan Farm consists of 15 hectares of estate owned vineyards in the commune of Breganze. 24 additional hectares are leased within the DOC zone of Breganze. Maculan also works with other growers, managing production of up to 50 hectares in the DOC zone of Breganze. Grape variety: 55% Merlot 45% Cabernet Sauvignon Color: deep ruby-red On the nose: seductive aromas of blackberries and dark cherries, along with hints of cedars and forest from the one year of aging in French barriques In the mouth: the wine is dry and full-bodied, which bilance harmoniously with its firm tannic backbone and distinct dark flavors, which persist well into the finish Nice pairing with first corse with meat ragout, reasted or grilled meat and hearty stews.
