DOC Classico Superiore

DOC Valpolicella Classico Superiore

Our Valpolicella Superiore is a constant challenge for us: we want to obtain a wine that can make our aromas and our tradition travel through time… our finest grapes with a short period of drying to make them stronger and make a wine that is suitable for long ageing, first in wood and then in bottle.

Vinification and maturation

The red grapes are picked by hand, selected in the vineyard and then left to dry for a month in wooden crates. After pressing, they are cold-macerated, before the fermentation begins spontaneously with indigenous yeasts. A warm maceration follows in order to extract all the aromas of the Oseleta, a top-quality native variety of our zone. The wine is left to rest for at least 12 months in French oak barrels, before being bottled without filtration. It then carries on maturing in bottle.

Tasting note

A deep ruby red in colour, with purple nuances; the nose recalls fruits of that hue: plums, blackberries and blackcurrants. Similar sensations re-emerge on the palate and its tannins give it good length.

IGT Verona Rosso

Rude

Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, just two grapes. Small production and a desire to take up the challenge of these varieties that people call “international”.
