The Wine

70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara 

The vineyards are located in the Valpolicella DOC zone, near the villages of Val di Mezzane, Illasi and Cazzano di Tramigna. The vines are planted in calcareous soils at elevations of 150-200 meters. 

The wine is “re-passed” for 11 to 14 days over the freshly-fermented pomace/lees of the grapes that have made the Amarone. This “re-passing” gives the wine increased structure and an appealing roundness. 30% of the wine is matured in oak barriques and 70% in large oak botti for 12-18 months. The wine is further aged for six months in the bottle. 

Rich ruby tending to orange with additional aging. Elegant and beautiful balance of silky tannins and a very lengthy finish. The palate displays black fruit flavours with hints of cherries and raspberries.

Aromas

Generous, emphatic bouquet that features rich fruit aromas, including dark cherry and blackberry, with a smooth touch of vanilla.
