Vinification and maturation:
The current-year Valpolicella Superiore is “repassed” over the fresh pomace of Amarone, initiating a second maceration-fermentation lasting some 8-10 days. The wine is then racked off and matures for 12-18 months, 30% in oak barrels and 70% in large oak ovals
Appearance: Intense ruby red tending to orange with cellaring
Bouquet: Generous and fruit-rich, with prominent notes of cherry, blackberry, and vanilla
Palate: Long-lingering, elegant, with well-balanced, glossy tannins
Enjoy at: 14-16°C.
