Successful expression of the family’s age-old traditional method of drying the grapes briefly, for a period of 60 days, or “Appassimento”, since 1978. It is an elegant, well-balanced wine, with a firm, frank and assertive style and supreme aromas and body.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Corvina Veronese.
TRAINING SYSTEM: Trentino-type pergola with, on average, 35 year-old vines
TASTING NOTES: It displays a deep ruby red color and scents of berry fruits; these notes combine with well-integrated spicy hints deriving from its maturation in wood. Its fruit is soft and rounded on the palate, and balanced by attractive, velvety tannins. Its finish is long and extremely satisfying.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: It is ideal with pasta and bean soup, fresh pasta with meat sauces and richly flavored red meat dishes.
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 12.5% voI.
