75% Corvina and 25% Rondinella from vineyards situated in the hills outside Verona in the Valpantena Valley.
Fruit was hand-harvested, destemmed, crushed and pumped to stainless steel tanks purpose built for fermenting red wine. The must was left in contact with the skins for seven days, then fermentation took place at up to 30°C. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tank in which the wine was held until bottling.
A lively, youthful ruby coloured wine with fresh cherry aromas that develop into a rich cherry pie character in the mouth. Body comes from soft, supple tannins that match the concentrated fruit through to the characterful finish.
