GRAPES

Corvina 60%, Corvinone 20%, Rodinella 10%, Molinara 10%

TYPE OF SOIL

Chalky, clay-like.

TIME OF GRAPE HARVEST

At the end of September, perfectly ripe grapes are hand-picked and selected.

AREA OF PRODUCTION

Owned vineyards on the hills (350 m above sea level) of S.Ambrogio di Valpolicella highly suitable land, which is south-facing.

VINIFICATION

The Ripasso producing process, which we have always used, consists of refermenting the most recent vintage Valpolicella with the marcs of the new Amarone. This means that the wine acquires a better structure and complexity, as it is in contact with the skins of grapes left to dry for 3 months which are still rich in sugars and aromas.

REFINING PROCESS

Four years in an oak barrel and further ageing in the bottle before marketing.
