Grape varieties and vineyards

70% Corvina Veronese (Novare massal selection), 20% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella

Production area

From the Tenuta Novare vineyards in the Valpolicella Classica area. Le Miniere vineyard: 4.01 ha Exposure: southwest Calcareous Eocene soils with Scaglia rossa from the upper Cretaceous, with an effective soil depth of about 1 metre, mainly made up of reddish clay.

Vinification

The vineyard is made up of two terraces located over the Novare underground mines, where iron and manganese (pyrolusite) were mined until the start of the 1900s.

Ageing

After fermentation, the wine finds balance firstly in concrete vats and then in the bottle. After a year, it is ready to offer up the precise and identifying expression of Valpolicella Classico.

Tasting notes

It is the Novare CRU that is able to produce an extraordinarily pleasant Valpolicella with a nose marked by fresh fruit, cherries, fruits of the forest, wild strawberries and complex elegant notes of white pepper typical of the Corvina variety. The wine is sapid and light on the palate, but displays persistence and personality.
