“The Offida Rosso “Klausura” from Ripawine comes from a selection of grapes from the vineyards intended for an excellent final quality. The name Klausura is derived from a dialect term which, as in Italian, indicates a sense of closure. Since Offida Rosso is a wine that first ages in barrel and then in the bottle, the term Klausura refers to this closure in barrel.”

First, the grapes of the Offida Rosso “Klausura” are picked by hand in mid-September. They are then destemmed and pressed. The grapes are then fermented with skins in steel vats for 15 days, followed by délestage and aging in barriques for 2 years. Finally, the wine is refined in the bottle for 6 months.
The Offida Rosso “Klausura” has an intense ruby red color with garnet reflections.
First, the fragrance is mainly characterized by fruity notes. Such as small black and red currants, plums and black cherries. There are also floral notes of violets and cyclamen. The long aging in barriques gives it the tertiary aromas that come from the wood and roasting, such as spices and young leather.
In the mouth this wine shows a structure and a concentration of a pronounced tannic texture. However, it is well balanced due to the alcohol content. Finally, the wine has a long finish with hints of blackberries, soft cinnamon and raspberries.
This wine from Ripawine goes well with meat entrees and with red meat in general.
