Production area

From the Tenuta Novare vineyards in the Valpolicella Classica area. Ognisanti vineyard: 2.92 ha Exposure: west.

Vinification

The vineyard is made up of eight terraces located uphill from the little Ognisanti church dating from the 16th century, which it is named after.

Ageing

Careful bunch selection and relaxed maceration make for a Valpolicella that improves its balance, vibrant tannic structure and persistent sapidity thanks to one year of ageing in oak barrels. After a further period of 6 months in the bottle, the wine is ready to display the superior character of this strip of land in the Valpolicella Classica area.

Tasting notes

Thanks to the calcareous-rich soils and the shallow effective soil depth, the vines produce medium-small berries which benefit from a favourable pulp-to-skin ratio and are suitable for making wines exclusively fresh grapes. These poor soils, made with lime that is easy for the roots to penetrate, produce a balsamic Valpolicella with rich overtones of cherry and morello cherry combined with intense notes of white pepper and dried flowers.
