Degustation notes

Dense, dark ruby colour, full-bodied bouquet revealing aromas of marmalade, plum and black berries, concentrated on the attack witha delicate fruity sweetness, strong structure, rich in aromas, peppery, full of a vigor, long finish.

Special notes

Selected Valpolicella grape clusters are harvested in early October and dried for up to 3 months in small crates on straw beds or shelves. Weight loss is about 25 to 40% of the grape's initial weight, which concentrates the sugars and the extracts. The grapes arepressed in January, then aged in barrels for many years.
