This is a wine of great concentration!
The nose is brimming with sour cherries and small forest fruits.
Palate: cherries and small forest fruits continue on the palate which reveals a generous body, a smooth and silky mouth feel and a long finish.
This Valpolicella is fermented in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks with the temperature kept at a maximum of 25 degrees C. Following fermentation 90% of the wine is aged for a period of 18 months in 3000 litre barrels and the remaining 10% in oak barriques. The wine undergoes a further 6 months of bottle ageing before being released commercially.
This wine is an ideal accompaniment to roast meats and pan fried steak and pasta dishes.
