Tasting Note: 
Rich aromas of ripe fruit and spice as well as on the palate. Ideal with roasts, game, and aged cheeses but also sipped meditatively by itself as a vino da meditazione.

A wine of stunning depth and concentration, both in its rich aromas of ripe fruit and spice as well as on the palate, where its alcohol finds in the acidity and elegant tannins perfect travelling companions.

The vineyards lie in the San Briccio and Lavagno area of Verona, in the Veneto, at an elevation of about 300 metres.

Depending on growing season conditions, grapes are harvested between the last third of September and the first third of October. The grapes are picked exclusively by hand.

The clusters, which are picked by hand and quality-inspected, are placed on wooden trays in drying lofts for 3-4 months, with space left between the clusters to encourage efficient drying. The dried clusters are then pressed and the must macerates on the skins for15-20 days at 23-25°C.

Maturation of ca. 4 years in large oak casks and in 20hl French oak ovals, followed by a brief bottle-ageing.
