The name Justo comes from a combination of the English word Just and the Italian word Giusto – meaning Right. This wine is an appassimento style wine – the grapes are dried for a short period of time – about 20 days – thereby creating a wine that is “just right”. Fermentation with skin contact occurs for 15 days before being racked into stainless steel tanks for full malolactic fermentation. After a short period resting in the bottle, wine is released and ready to enjoy. This wine has a deep, bright, and intense red color. On the nose, notes of ripe fruit and cherry are evident. A bold structure, yet with a smooth and velvety mouth-feel. It goes perfectly with game, grilled or stewed meat, and very mature cheeses.
