Harvest and Maturing
Back in the day, when the the vineyards was not close enough to the cellar, in order to transport the grapes in the wooden back carriers called "Zummen", the grapes had to be conveyed in casks and vats by wagons. For crushed grapes it was essential to transport them in sealable casks, called "Kastlet", since the terrain of the lower mountain slopes were steep and narrow. Our Cabernet grapes used to be transported in such casks and this is why we choose this antic name.
Ideal with roasted or grilled meat, venison or piquant cheese.
Lively, Fresh Wines Filled with Character After a capricious winegrowing year with some extreme weather conditions, the ideal autumn weather before the beginning of harvesting led to a good harvest with some promising quality. (Südtirol Wein)
