Cork or Screwcap? That is the question

posted on 11 February 2015
Mi piacerebbe avere una vostra opinione riguardo l’utilizzo del tappo a vite, stiamo valutando l’idea di utilizzarlo su altri nostri vini dopo la felice esperienza con il Rosanoire 2013 e 2014. Le nostre considerazioni sono queste:
  • migliore tenuta e freschezza del prodotto
  • praticità ed economicità per gli utilizzatori dell’apertura “svita-avvita” sicuramente maggiore rispetto alle chiusure tradizionali
  • basso impatto ambientale, riciclabilità del tappo e risparmio delle foreste di quercia da sughero negli ultimi anni depauperate da decorticazioni selvagge
  • drastica riduzione dei solfiti aggiunti all’imbottigliamento a tutto vantaggio dell’integrità e del rispetto del vino e della salute dei consumatori
  • fine di tutte quelle fastidiose alterazioni organolettiche dovute in qualche modo ai tappi di sughero
E’ molto gradita una tua opinione in merito, visto che saremmo eventualmente intenzionati a impiegarlo a breve sul Valtènesi 2014 e Rinè 2014… Tecnicamente non ci sarebbe alcun problema, anzi, ma tu cosa ne pensi? Mandateci una mail a info@cantrina.it.

Riné gains a screw cap

Cantrina - Riné tappo a vite
This coming March, the new 2018 vintage of Riné, its second vintage as a certified organic wine, will debut on the market under a screw cap for the first time, and so we want to talk a bit about this type of closure. We have been using this closure for some years now for Rosanoire, and since last year for our latest-born Valtènesi Chiaretto. We have found the results positive in terms of cellarability, soundness, and crispness, in particular over the medium- and long-term; our customers, often tired of opening wines that were tainted, have expressed full satisfaction.

Harvest 2019

Vendemmia Cantrina 2019
Autumn has FINALLY arrived. The long and hot Summer 2019, which lasted till October, is now behind us.  Now, the weather is inviting us to stay a bit in the house (or in the cellar) and is helping us to think straight…. That past season was, here in our area, one of the strangest and most complicated within recent memory. We found ourselves having to face conditions that were simultaneously both extreme and contradictory. The cold and rains during flowering caused a reduction in the potential crop, and two hailstorms in June and early August caused even worse damage, since they actually halved the crop.

Cantrina, a 20-year-old taste

Cantrina Ventennale
On 13 May, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our winery with a vertical tasting showcasing the three wines that, from our founding to the present, have become iconic. We selected the vintages of each that are most representative of the evolution of the blends, production methods, and ageing. The years tasted are: - Riné (1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2013, 2017) - Nepomuceno (1999, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2011, 2015) - Sole di Dario (1999, 2001, 2006, 2009, 2012)
