An Italian red wine from Valpolicella using organically farmed, late harvest grapes from vineyards in the Mezzane di Sotto hills 400m above sea level.
Valpolicella is produced by the late harvest of clusters which are cut in early October and left on vines to dry for a week. Mainly Corvina and Corvinone is used but also Rondinella and Molinara. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, without addition of yeasts. The wine is realised onto the market 12 month after harvest.
A bright red with fresh fruit and low tannin. Red cherry and red berry fruit flavours with a little added complexity from 10% ageing in oak barriques.
Try with chicken salad, pomegranate, pine nuts and raisins, or pumpkin risotto
