Product Details

ORIGIN: vineyard of the same name, owned by the Vaona family, located in the municipal district of Marano di Valpolicella.

SOIL: medium-textured alluvial soil of a calcareous nature. Optimal sun exposure guarantees quality production. Altitude 230-250 metres above sea level.

GRAPE VARIETY: Corvina 30%, Corvinone 35%, Rondinella 25%, Molinara 5%, Raboso Veronese 5%. Age of the vineyard 10/40 years.

HARVEST: when ripe the grapes are carefully selected and placed on bamboo racks, where they undergo a TRADITIONAL drying process for about 5 months.

VINIFICATION TECHNIQUE: gentle pressing of the grapes is preceded by partial removal of the stalks. This is followed by 7-10 days maceration at a low temperature (1-2°C), which encourages a higher concentration of varietal aromas. With the progressive increase in temperature spontaneous alcoholic fermentation starts, which continues at a spontaneous temperature (15-20°C) under conditions of partial anaerobia for over 20-25 days.

REFINEMENT: refined in durmast oak barrels (15-30 hl) for 40 months, followed by 18 months in 10-hl wood barrels, with an additional period of 7 – 8 months in bottles.

Colour: inscrutable burgundy red. Tasting notes: a remarkably concentrated flavour, persistent and well balanced by an elegant and velvety tannic structure.
Food pairings: game, mature cheese varieties, and for meditation. Bouquet: intense, of red fruit preserved in alcohol (cherry, plum), well combined with noble and persistent spicy scents.
