Intense ruby red color. A multifaceted bouquet with notes of ripe red berries, thyme, licorice, cedar and blackberry. Full-bodied, voluminous in taste, with silky tannins and a long finish with notes of dark chocolate and spicy cake.
History of wine
Valpolicella has centuries-old traditions. Grapes are harvested in September in order, firstly, to avoid the appearance of botritis, and, secondly, it is believed that when the berries dry, they lose not only moisture but also acidity and, therefore, grapes must be picked when acidity is high enough, then eat when the grapes are slightly immature. So everyone thinks, but not Sergio. He decided to do exactly the opposite: at the end of September, pick grapes for the base Valpolicella, and leave the best marked brushes in advance to ripen on the vine at least until mid-October. In the end, grapes are a type of fruit that does not ripen if separated from the plant (such as a banana), which means berries should not lose anything other than water, Sergio reasoned reasonably. And ... won again! His Amarone Riserva was among the cult wines of the region. This is one of the truly great Amarone, which is available only in the best years and in a limited edition.
