Production area

From the Tenuta Novare, Valpolicella Classica, terraced vineyards. Calcareous-marl, with limestone deposits.

Vinification

In March, the fresh, young vintage Valpolicella undergoes a secondary fermentation on the still slightly sweet Amarone skins.

Ageing

Aging in 75 hl French oak barrels for 12 months, and one year in concrete vats. Then, the wine rests for about 6 months in bottle.

Tasting notes

Wine of medium body, with gentle spicy notes of vanilla and chocolate and the typical notes of cherry, black cherry and white pepper. On the palate, freshness and drinkability (typical of Valpolicella) combine with a silky tanninc structure and an intense aromatic persistence, typical of Amarone. Fresh, soft and sapid finish.

Food pairings

Medium-matured cheeses, grilled and roast meat, game.
