CABERNET Doc Piave
Cabernet – both franc and sauvignon – and Merlot come
from the Gironde department (Bordeaux).
Morandini describes how Count Monfredo di Sabuy had
been growing this vine in his estate of Valmagra, in the
area of Marengo, near Alessandria, since 1820. Another
certain trace dates back to the year 1870, when
Cabernet was grown together with the franc variety in
the estate of counts Corinaldi on the Euganean hills. It
was also grown and classified at the Royal School of
Winegrowing and Oenology of Conegliano in 1877.
Red vinification, with maceration lasting 10-12 days at
a temperature close to 30°C to favour the dissolution of
