Wine Description:
The vineyards in San Pietro in Cariano and Masua/Montecorna employ a unique grape drying process for approximately 20 days, preserving freshness while intensifying flavors. The blend includes Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Molinara. After harvest, grapes are immediately pressed and destemmed, with fermentation and maceration featuring frequent pump-overs. Re-fermentation on Amarone marc in January enhances color, structure, and alcohol. Aging occurs in a balanced combination of 50% Slavonian oak barrels and 50% barriques, contributing to the wine's distinct character.
Pros:
  • Intense and complex aromas of ripe red fruits, dried cherries, and spices

Cons:
