A Super-Veneto made from Corvina grapes. As the vines are double guyot trained (rather than the traditional Pergola), there was no need for the ripasso technique to be used. The grapes were de-stemmed and crushed, after which fermentation took place between at 20-28°C. The wine was then matured in bottle for ten months before release.
Corvina is an Italian variety grown predominantly in the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Corvina is blended with several other grapes to create the classic wines from this region – Bardolino and Valpolicella, plus Amarone and Recioto. When vinified fresh (ie not dried), it usually produces medium bodied wines with a light crimson colouring, sour cherry notes and a classic slight bitter cherry and almond twist on the finish.
