Late manual harvest in mid-October.
VINIFICATION AND AGING
Fresh grapes harvested and immediately destemmed, not crushed. Vinification takes place in stainless steel. A short cold maceration is followed by temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation. Brief daily pumping over and delestage. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. One part ages in steel, the other in French oak tonneaux for at least 12 months.
A distinctive wine, with good structure, firm and elegant. Ruby red color. Very complex on the nose, notes of red fruits emerge with pleasant hints of spices. The taste is dry and persistent, the tannin is still lively and vivid.
Excellent paired with red meats and game. It goes well with traditional Veronese dishes such as pasta with meat sauces, risottos and boiled meats. Serving temperature: 16-18° C.
