Le Carline’s wines return triumphant from BIOFACH 2010
It’s with great pride that LE CARLINE communicates its double victory at BioFach 2010, in the international competition of organic wines: MUNDUSvini, one of the most prestigious and recognized competitions worldwide in the bio wine industry.
The Grand Prix MUNDUSvini BioFach International Organic Wine, sponsored by the Academy of Wine “MUNDUSvini Weinakademie Internationale” is a competition held in Germany for organic wines from all production areas of the world.
Our winners wines are: the Rosso Carline 2003 Veneto Orientale IGT and the Amicitia 2008 Veneto Orientale Bianco, which both obtained the qualification “Silver”.
The Rosso Carline is made from selected bunches of Cabernet Franc, Merlot e Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, whereas the Amicitia is produced by Chardonnay’s grapes.
The first one needs to mellow, at least two years, first in the barrels, then in barriques and finally it maturing in the bottle. It has a garnet red colour and a velvety and pleasantly bitter flavour.
While the second one it’s an elegant wine, it’s colour is straw yellow, it is slightly spicy and it ferments in small oak casks.
The evaluation was based on examining the olfactory and the taste of wines, as well as on individual allocation of points, in accordance with the lists of OIV ( International Organisation of Vineyard and Wine) and of UICE (International Union of Oenologists)
The jury asked to evaluate the wines are made by prominent professionals and competent in the tasting.
