Training System/ Yield
Pergola veronese (arbour system) / 10000 kg/ha of grapes
The lightly overripened grapes are harvested by hand in October. After 100-120 days of “appassimento” (drying of the grapes) the grapes are more concentrated. We press the grapes and we put the pressings into steel tanks where juice ferments with grapes skins for about 30-40 days. During fermentation, the wine and the grapes skins are mixed daily by hand with pump-over into the lap and delastage to get the maximum out of the product.Ageing
Four to five years in small old French barrels
Deep garnet ruby red colour. Intense, elegant and ample, with prune and cherry in spirit aromas. On the palate it is dry, warm, soft, full bodied. Elegance, persistence and complexity with spices, pepper, cloves, coffee, cocoa, overripened fruit and balsamic flavours.
Tasty dishes, roasted red meats, roasts, game, stews, mature and strong cheeses. Also excellent after-dinner and as meditation wine. The recommended drinking temperature is between 16°-18°C.
