Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
This Valpolicella has a vibrant ruby red color. Initially, this wine gives all its vitality and strength. After the first year of aging it starts maturing and the tannins and acidity become more and more integrated with the flavors of ripe fruit, enriching the wine with a final touch of softness. The bouquet is bursting with aromas of red fruit jam and fresh red fruits with hints of vanilla. On the palate, the wine is dry, smooth, medium-bodied and balanced.

Vineyard Notes
SOIL TYPE: On the valleys sides of the Val d’Illasi where the soils are mainly limestone. PRUNING SYSTEM: Pergola corta veronese
Production Notes
18.400 bottles produced. After the harvest a part of the grapes is left to dry following the Appassimento method, and it is fermented separately in wooden barrels while the rest is fermented in stailess steel vats. Only after 10-12 months and after having assessed the characteristics of the wines, we decide how to blend the two. The wine is then bottled and left to mature for 5-6 months.
Winemaker Notes
The Valpolicella is one of the most important wines traditionally made in our area and therefore represents something special for our family. The local grape varieties are beautiful, generous and allow us to create an exceptional wine. 
Food & Wine Pairing
This wine pairs well with pasta and rice dishes especially with sauces of game or mushrooms. It is also good served with grilled red meats and medium mature cheeses.
