Grape varieties and vineyards

85% Corvina Veronese, 10% Merlot, 5% Rondinella.

Production area

Valpantena vineyards. Soil calcareous-marl, eastern slope. Calcareous-clay, western slope.

Vinification

Drying in the lofts of the Grezzana winery. Fermentation is interrupted when the residual sugar is 120 g/L.

Ageing

Ageing: cherry-wood barrels for about 12 months.

Tasting notes

Dense and velvety, but never cloying; sweet, fragrant and intense with typical notes of cherry, which are enhanced by the ageing. The sugars are not high, leaving a lingering aftertaste of fruits of the forest, chocolate and liquorice.

Food pairings

It goes well with oven-baked cakes and fruit tarts; it makes an intriguing pairing with young and medium-matured cheeses.
