Production area Classic Valpolicella. From vineyards with calcareous soils whitish situated in the commune of San Pietro in Cariano.

The varieties of grapes Corvina and corvinone (70%), Rondinella (30%).

Sensory Impressions A clean ruby hue with brilliant undertones, an intense aroma of red flowers, cherry, raspberry, red currant, and base notes of spicy cinnamon and coffee: a bouquet of extraordinary harmony, elegance and richness. The palate has a rich mouthfeel, the tannins, very vibrant and with a good grip, give it a fine structure; the correct levels of acidity and alcohol contribute to creating a perfectly balanced and most enjoyable wine.

Food matchings Valpolicella located several combinations in function of its maturity. From young blend well with the more classic Venetian salami, as venetian soppressa: unmissable its combination with risotto with the chicken livers. When more mature, proposed in most large glasses, loves to join with the boiled meat and liver Venetian.
