Montsclapade (split mountain in friulan dialect) is perhaps the best known of Dorigo wines.
It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, aged for 24 months in barrels. It impresses with the structure, born of near-obsessive work of preparation of the grapes, and with the elegance achieved with a careful and patient work in the aging cellar and the selection of the finest lots.
After bottling it ages for six more months in our cellars, it is then released on the market already soft and ready for drinking. However, it will start to reach its very best five or six years after the harvest and can age in the cellar for more than 10 years
Appearance: very intense ruby red
Nose: elegant pervasive spice and red fruit against a backdrop of
leather, licorice and cocoa powder

giving way to chocolate and tobacco. Subtle spice and vanilla, with great persistence and breadth on the palate. Massive but silky tannins in the finish.
