Corvina gentile, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara.
Simple and double pergola with an average age of 40 years.
By hand in small boxes.
The grapes are harvested by hand in October and pressed after about thirty days. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks, the wine rests for four years in big barrels, then in steel tanks before bottling.
Brilliant ruby colour. Intense flavour with hints of mature cherry and sweet spices. Harmonious, fresh, sapid and dry in the mouth with a typical aftertaste of cherry.
It requires strong and decisive flavours to be ideally enhanced like game, precious grilled meat, oven-baked lam and strong cheese.
