Description

"This medium to full bodied red exhibits ripe, red berry and mineral notes from start to finish. At this price point, this is one of the best "under the radar" Italian wines in the shop right now!"

VINIFICATION:
"15% of Corvina's grapes is dried for 4 weeks, 20% of all fresh grapes are directly vinificated. The 65% is 'ripassato' on not pressed skins of Amarone to earn colour and structure. Maceration of the must-peel for 12-15 days on a temperature between 20-26°C Regular remontages We drawn off the skins from the must. Malolactic fermentation. Transfer to French oak barrels of 350, 500, 1500 lt ." -Winery

VINEYARDS:
"27 hectares of modern vertical trellis of vines planted from 1970 to 2001. The soils are calcareous with red clay in the vineyards Il Perlar and Palazzina, white clay and tufo in Monte del Drago. Harvest occurred from September 13th to October 3rd ." -Winery

VINTAGE:
"Very cold winter, very normal springtime. Many rainfalls during the all first part of the summer, but from the end of July to the end of October the weather was sunny and dry, so the end of maturation and the harvest were simply perfect. Very balanced vintage, a great vintage." -Winery
