WINE-MAKING

Grapes are hand-harvested at the end of September. The grapes are dried for 60 days in order to gain high concentration. After stemming, they are softly pressed. Fermentation temperature is 25°. Maceration lasts for 10 days, with programmed punching 3 times daily. Once Malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine is aged in wooden barrels for a minimum of 2 years, one part in a large 50 hL barrels of Slavonian oak and the other part in 2.25 hL French oak barrels worked in different toasts.

This wine is made by Jako wines. Their vineyards are…

OLTREPÒ PAVESE

OLTREPĂ’ PAVESE

Oltrepo’ Pavese is a hilly territory of unspoiled beauty. For centuries, elements in its clay-and-limestone soil have combined to create the finest grapevines. Their quality was recognized even in pre-Roman times, as attested by Pliny, Strabo and Virgil. Located in Lombardy, it owes its name to its peculiar position south of the Po River and merging with the northern Appenines. The area vaunts outstanding traditions and cultures, influenced by sea, mountan and plain. It alone produces more than 70% of DOCcertified wines.

VALPOLICELLA

Valpolicella is one of the most prestigious areas in the Italian wine-producing panorama. Its very name, deriving from val polis cellae, “valley of many wine cellars”, points to its rich, ancient enological activity. Situated to the north of Verona, it borders on Lake Garda, protected on the north by the Lessini mountains.

Nearly everywhere, its enchanting hill country is dominated by vineyards. The unique traits of its terroir form the foundation for its wines’uniqueness.

PROVINCIA DI VERONA

About Paris Wine Cup

The Paris Wine Cup aims to recognize, reward and promote wine brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific wine drinker. For any wine brand to earn its place on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s wine list -  and then vitally stay there - they need to be marketable and consumer driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it.

That is why the Paris Wine Cup is different. It will single out and shine the spotlight on those wine brands that consumers really want to buy and have a clear market value for trade buyers.

Paris Wine Cup Team

The competition follows strict rules concerning its organization, criteria, Judging, and Results.

A competition that will judge wines in three key areas:

  • Their quality.
  • Their value for money.
  • What they look like.

To be an award winner you will need to have a top quality wine, that offers both the trade and the consumer great value for money, and you will need to look good and truly stand out on the shelf and on the back bar.
