Wine maker notes
Rubesto is made from specially selected grapes thatare hand harvested in October, then destemmed and soft pressed followed by fermentation, with specially selected indigenous yeasts, for 15- 20 days. Traditional vinification in stainless steel tanks follows, then the wine is aged in both barrique and small French oak barrels for 12 months with further aging in the bottle before release. Rubesto is a deep ruby red colored wine with garnet reflections, aromas of ripe-red fruits and hints of vanilla and spice. On the pallet the great structure of this wine can be appreciated. It is warm, strong and persistent with a long finish - goes well with game, red meat and mature cheeses. Decanting for one hour prior to serving is recommended in order to enjoy all the nuances this wine has to offer. Ages well.

The wine producing vineyards of Cantina Frentana are located within the land boundaries of the Frentana village, which lies south-east of the Apennine mountains near the historic city of Lanciano in the very heart of the Abruzzo wine producing region. The Frentana winery praises itself for having one of the most efficiently operated wine growing associations in Abruzzo. Frentana began in the late fifties with a few small selected vineyards and wine growers, and in the last forty years has grown to more than 400 members. These growers are assisted throughout the entire grape growing season, right up to the harvest, by the highly qualified Frentana staff (which includes an agronomist and enologist) in an approach aimed at very specific grape yields considered worthy of wines with the traditional Frentana standard of quality. All the latest, most up-to-date wine making equipment and techniques are used together with a wealth of collective historical winemaking knowledge, to produce great Frentana wines.
