GRAPE VARIETIES AND VINEYARDS: 80% Corvina Veronese and 20% Rondinella. The vines are vertical-trellised and Guyot-trained, with a planting density of 5000 plants/ha.
UNIT: 1 x 75cl Bottle.
PRODUCTION AREA: The Valpantena hills, north of Verona. The soils are calcareous-marl in the east and calcareous-clay in the west, rich in iron.
VINIFICATION: The harvest is done by hand and starts in the middle of September. The best grapes are selected so that only the healthiest and ripest bunches are sent to the drying rooms of the winery in Grezzana, where they are laid out in single-layer crates. In mid-January, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, then fermentation starts, at first at a temperature of 4°- 5°C, which then reaches 22°C in the final stages.
AGEING: A part ages in Slavonian oak barrels with an average capacity of 25 hl, and a small part in barriques for about 30 months. Bottling is followed by at least six months of maturation.
TASTING NOTES: An intense red colour with purplish highlights. On the nose, marked and intense aromas of very ripe cherries, sour cherries, fruits of the forest, spicy and nutty notes typical of the Valpantena. Good follow-through of red fruits on the palate, with supple tannins to give depth.
FOOD PAIRINGS: It is a full-bodied wine that needs rich dishes, mature cheeses and strong-flavoured meats.
