The 2017 vintage saw some challenges; specifically to the Corvina and Corvinone vines as they struggled with frost, freezing temperatures and drought. Challenges were overcome, however, and the resulting wine is a bright, fresh, classic expression of Valpolicella.   At the winery, the juice is macerated and fermented on the skins for 12-15 days at a closely moderated, consistent temperature. Once complete, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation before it is transferred to large barrels and cement tanks to mature for 12 months before bottling.
Taste: A beautiful expression of Valpolicella, showing all the much- loved characteristics that Corvina and Corvinone bring to a blend. Dry, medium-bodied has nicely integrated tannins. The wine explodes with fresh red fruit; cherry, cranberry, red currant. There is an underlying red rose floral component and a slight note of forrest floor. The finish is long yet refreshing.
Cellaring Potential: Drink now or cellar for 6+ years
Food Matching: Great red for everyday enjoyment, the perfect wine for barbecue, pasta or vegetable-based main courses.
