Produced only in top vintages, this graceful wine is made from a selection of Corvina and Rondinella grapes grown in the oldest vineyards in the township of Sant’Ambrogio in Valpolicella’s “classic” zone. Following vinification, it undergoes long-term aging for at least 4 years in Slavonian oak casks.
The particular low yields have led to a wine of great concentration, with aroma of vanilla and fruits, an intense and long lasting taste. Baked plum, fruitcake, underbrush and new leather are just some of the aromas you'll find on this generous red. On the concentrated palate, velvety tannins envelop fleshy Marasca cherry steeped in spirits, blackberry extract, baking spice and a confectionery note. A hint of tobacco lingers on the close.
