Valpolicella DOC Superiore
Corvina and Convinone (80%), Rondinella (20%)
Deep ruby red with a slight garnet hue.
Rich, complex aroma, warm and embracing, with recognizable fruity scents of jam and very ripe red fruits.
Slightly grapey notes of tobacco and vanilla. Warm, round, full-bodied palate, well sustained by balanced acidity and close-knit, embracing tannins. A clear nose-palate persistence returns in the finish.
Ideal for the traditional Veronese mixed boiled meals. Perfect for brazed and roasted red meat, stracotto, feathered game and strong-flavoured, soft-textured cheese.

Vinification and Aging

The grapes are selected again, crushed and vinified at controlled temperature with punching-down and pumping over for 14 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs partially in steel and partially in wood, after which the two wines are blended in variable proportions according to the vintage.
