DESCRIPTION: The two cabernets (franc and sauvignon) and merlot come directly from those historic vines imported to Lispida by Count Corinaldi and merge into a harmonious and fascinating wine as in the Bordeaux tradition. The vines from which this wine is made are on average 80 years old, despite the expanded breeding form they provide a very limited quantity. For this reason, the name of the wine takes up the well-known work of the great poet Petrarch, who lived the last seven years of his life in Arquà with great passion for agriculture and viticulture, which literally means from the Latin "The weigh together", the "Compendium", that is the essence, the summary, providing the starting point for the La Costa company to produce a great wine that brings together all the qualitative peculiarities of what viticulture and wine represents in the Euganean hills.
The grapes that have reached maturity are harvested manually in boxes, and transported to the cellar, where they are de-stemmed, fermented in steel tanks for 15-20 days depending on the vintage. After racking, the wine is placed in French oak barrels (Allier) for about 14-18 months for aging.
After some decanting it is filtered, bottled and left in the bottle for a few months. Expressive wine of considerable depth, aromatically complex and gustatively harmonious, it summarizes all the characteristics of the incredible territory in which it is produced.
Ideal with red meats and game. Medium-aged cheeses.
