Winemaker's Notes
This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, the Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins which increases the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in color, bouquet.

Excellent companion to game dishes, grilled meat and roasts, salami and aged cheeses.

Blend: 85% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta

Pair this wine with risotto, lyonnaise sauces, beef negimaki, and rabbit ragu.

Critical Acclaim
Vintage 2015 - JS 94 points
James Suckling - "This is so refined and focused with layers of fruit and ultra-fine tannins. Plenty of chocolate and spice, too. Medium to full body, integrated tannins and a focused finish. Drink or hold."
