Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) This classic wine from the Valpolicella area is made from Corvina, Rondinella and Sangiovese grapes. The shades of almond and violet are outstanding, with a structure that enables this wine to age for several years. GRAPE VARIETY 80% Corvina Veronese, 10% Rondinella, 10% Sangiovese. VINIFICATIONThe manual harvesting of the grapes is followed by de-stemming and traditional maceration for a period of days in stainless steel fermenters. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is separated from the skins with gentle pressing and aged in 50/75 hectolitre oak casks for about 12 months.

    dark color. very dry almost woody. some fruit but not prominent. decant at least an hour and might get better with 2-3 years of aging but still a tasteless Italian. Good for a Valpol.
