This wine shows extraordinary levels of concentration, with a nose of blackberry, chery and plum combined with notes of spice, licquorice and cocoa which follow through to a palate which is full and round with well structured tannins. Striking the perfect balance between smoothness and acidity, this wine is drinking beautifully now, but will certainly reward those with the paitence to cellar it for another 5-10 years.

In the vineyard

Made exclusively from Corvina and Rondinella grapes grown on the slopes surrounding Villa Novare in the Valpolicella Classico area, in vineyards which are exclusively used for growing grapes intended for the Appassimento method.

In the winery

After the grapes were manually havested in mid-September, a selection of the best, perfectly healthy bunches were transported to the airing lofts and left to dry on cane mats for 120 days. Once dried, the grapes were pressed and vinified at a low temerature, leading to a very slow fermentation (50+ days). After racking, the wines were given an extended ageing in large, old oak barrels. The wine was then bottled in April 2008.
