TASTING NOTE

The wine has a lovely and intense ruby-red colour with a bouquet reminiscent of cherries, dried fruit, chocolate and prunes. On the palate it is full-bodied, soft and round, with a pleasant spiciness and an amazingly long and lingering finish.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Grapes from low-yielding vineyards around the town of San Pietro in Cariano, close to Verona, are used to make this wine. The blend is 60% Corvina and 40% Merlot, the grapes grown on pergola Veronese and Guyot trained vines typical of the region.

After hand picking, about 60% of the grapes are placed in wooden crates in a well-aerated loft and left to dry until December. During this the grapes will lose up to 50% of their original weight in water concentrating the colour and flavour compounds. These dried grapes are removed from the stems and undergo a slow, long fermentation. In February, this wine is blended with the product of the undried-fruit fermentation, and 50% of this blend is aged in American and French barriques for 12 months.
