Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
The color is bright light ruby red; striking for its transparency allowing the eye to see through it. In bouquet the main theme are red fruits: pomegranate, cherry, currant with wisteria flowers and tiny red roses. On the palate the wine is young and very fresh. Fine, elegant and fragrant with very light balsamic notes and only an hint of spices such as cloves, juniper and a pinch of pepper. To the sip a return of fresh fruit, tasty, balanced and soft finishing with pleasant persistency.
Vineyard Notes
The soil is rich in limestone, tufa and clay.
Production Notes
Grapes harvested in September are pressed immediately. Fermentation and maceration in stainless steel at controlled temperature for 8-10 days. Ageing in steel tanks and in bottle in the dark and cool cellar carved in the tufa below the Vajol hill.
Winemaker Notes
We only produce numbered bottles of the five Valpolicella classical wines: amarone, ripasso, valpolicella classico superiore, valpolicella classico, recioto. All of our five wines feature the five native grapes of Valpolicella classical: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and Oseleta. The polyphony of flavours and aromas of the five local vine varieties are safeguarded exclusively in large oak barrels from France and Slavonia. During the long period of refinement these barrels lend just the right balance of wood, preserving and exalting the intense full-bodied aromas of these fruits of the land. We only use 30 or 50 hl barrels to obtain uniquely elegant wines.
Food & Wine Pairing
Excellent opening wine from aperitif to appetizers, great with sliced cured meat and pasta dishes. Buffalo Caprese with beefsteak tomato, oregano from Etna, big leaf basil and last harvest EVO oil. Fish is not a taboo: we suggest baked monkfish with new roasted potatoes and cherry tomatoes.
