This red wine called 'Terra' is drawn from a single vineyard at Villa Picta called San Bartolomeo; here the soils have less limestone than everything else at the domaine. It’s on very sandy soils with a solid base of clay—winemaker Paolo Pasini calls it ‘his Gironde.’ The two varieties, native Marzemino and Venetian/Bordelaise Merlot, are vinified separately; both are destemmed and macerated for around two weeks, pressed in a vertical basket press, and ultimately blended in stainless steel. This wine displays earthen, robust fruit, as well as the same mineral and acid drive that’s in Paolo's Lambrusco; it’s one of the three most chiseled wines he produces. Terrific for lovers of both Bordeaux and Burgundy, as the two varieties in this wine walk a fine line between the deep fruit and earth of the former and the floral elegance of the latter.
