The history of Livon wines dates back 1964 when Dorino Livon bought his first vineyards on the hills of Collio, in Italy’s North eastern region of Friuli bordering Slovenia. He built a winery perfectly equipped with the most technologically advanced systems in order to produce high quality and fresh white and red wines. The Collio region is re-known for producing some of Italy’s most enduring white wines. Livon has a diverse portfolio of wines and has earned a reputation for crafting brilliant white wines in Collio, though their holdings have expanded to other areas in Italy. Livon produces both approachable everyday drinking white wines as well as limited production wines from designated Cru and Gran Cru sites.
The Tiareblu is in the Livon’s Gran Cru range of wines. It is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown on marl soil. The grapes are hand harvested in boxes followed by a gentle destemming and fermentation at 20°C on the skins for eighteen days. 18 months ageing in barrique gives at once structure to the wine and helps with the integration of the tannins. The wine is characterized by an intense, full and fragrant nose, recalling raspberries and blackberries. The palate it is dry, full-bodied with harmonious tannins and a long finish. Enjoy this with mature cheeses, red meats, game.
