Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red color. The bouquet is full of spicy notes such as cinnamon, cloves and black pepper. On the palate, the roundness and elegance come through. The tannins are elegant, the wine is full-bodied and has a fantastic balance.
Winemaker Notes
Hand harvested in early fall. Only the best bunches are laid to dry in small containers for 20-30 days. Following this brief "appasimento" period the grapes are destemmed and pressed, the must is left to ferment in oak barrels for about 20 days at controlled temperatures. After the first fermentation, the wine is transferred to 500lt casks where it refines for 4 months. The wine is then added to the skins of the Amarone with some additional dried grapes and left to ferment for a second time over a period of 2 weeks. This process increases the body and alcohol content of the wine. Final stage is 12 months in 500lt and 225lt barrels.
Food & Wine Pairing
"Valpo" pairs well with grilled red meats, stews and game as well as mature cheese. Serve at 57°.
