Vineyard manager – owner: Fiorentino Sandri. Winemaker - owner: Mario Pojer. The wine displays a deep garnet red color with tinges of dark violet in its youth. The bouquet is clean and complex with hints recalling wild berries, black currants, raspberries, blackberries and ripe, red fruits, such as cherries and plums. On the palate it is elegant, dry, rich and balanced. A sweetness reminiscent of licorice is offset by a mild level of tannin. Rosso Faye pairs well with roasted veal shanks with polenta, a grilled steak or rack of lamb. It also partners handsomely with Trentino cheeses such as Trentingrana and aged Vezzena. Vineyard situation: the name of the countryside on the hill of Faedo is Paradisot in the commune of San Michele all’Adige at elevation 250 meters (850 feet) above sea level with a southwest exposure.
