The name, Gabàn, comes from “Riparo Gabàn”, an archaeological site discovered in the seventies, where evidence of human settlements from the Bronze Age was found; this name is a symbol of its traditional heritage. Gabàn is a “cru” made from Cabernet and Merlot grapes picked exclusively from the family’s Gabàn vineyard, located on a hill north of Trento that has 6000 vines/hectare, planted in rows (guyot), where production is discrete (less than 60 ql/hectare). Bunches are hand-picked and selected to be then made into wine separately according to their variety. We work with enthusiasm, respecting tradition, macerating for 10-12 days on the skins. We age the wine in wood for approximately a year, then in steel, where it stays a few months until bottling. It continues to evolve for another 2-3 in the bottle.
It evolves extremely well, ageing nobly.
