From the Blend vinification of 70% Corvina and Corvinone grapes, 20% Rondinella, 10% Oseleta. The origin of the vineyard falls in the Valpolicella area, in Veneto. For the vinification the bunches chosen are collected in boxes and then placed in a special ventilated room to be dried according to the famous drying process. The grapes lose at least 35% of their original weight thus concentrating sugars, aromatic components and noble tannins. Soft pressing takes place in January and fermentation starts at a low temperature (13 ° - 17 °); the long maceration allows the maximum extraction of the fruit. The wine remains for 24 months in French oak tonneau and in larger barrels (700, 1500 and 3500 liters); after bottling, it remains to refine at least one year before being delivered.
A dark and intense ruby colour. The perfume is organized around fruity notes, especially aromas of cherry, dried plum, black currant and fig; then more spicy hints of tobacco and licorice take over. The taste on the palate has a full and round body, with fine and very well structured tannins, which contributes to the great longevity of this wine.
