This is a prestigious red wine for ageing with a deep garnet red colour, produced using grapes picked in the hilly area of Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella and subsequently refermented on the marc of classic Recioto and Amarone. The marked aromas of plum and cooked marasca cherry stand out from the complex bouquet and make the first pleasurable impact, followed by perception of the perfect harmony of the full robust body.
The vineyards are all situated to the northwest of Verona in the hills above Sant’Ambrogio, in the heart of the classic Valpolicella area. The average age of 28 years varies from 10 to 40, with some indigenous vines more than 50 years old. The soil is Neolithic, calcareous, thin and stony.
