The vineyard is on a hill known as “Ravazzol”, renowned for its potential to grow the highest quality grapes thanks to its topographical and climatic conditions. The vineyard is at an altitude of between 200 and 300 meters above sea-level. The average age of vines varies from 50 to 70 years. The vineyard yield is held at a maximum of 5 to 6 tons per hectare.
Grape varieties: 70% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella e Molinara.
Region of origin: The historically “classic” zone of the Valpolicella.
Soil: The soil is predominantly clay-limestone with a high percentage of rock and stone. This type of soil gives elegance and minerality to the wine, qualities essential to the ageing potential of a wine.
Tasting notes and food suggestions: This wine is a deep ruby red tending towards garnet. The nose is rich and complex with aromas of sour cherries, blackberries, tobacco and candied fruits. The palate is rich and intense with similar fruit characters, fine tannins and exceptional length. This is a wine that will not leave you indifferent. Ideally this wine goes with red meats such as char-grilled steak, slow-cooked stews and game or it can be simply sipped and savoured in “meditation” as we say in Italy.
