Terroir: Upper hillside zone of the Valpolicella Classico zone in Italy. Marley soil.
Vinification: Select grapes are picked and then arranged on flat drawers and kept in a dry, cool, well-ventilated room during a four-month natural drying period. The dried grapes are pressed and go through a cold maceration with skins and stems intact for about 20 days. The juice is then fermented for 25 more days and then transferred to barriques and large Slavonian oak casks for 24 to 36 months.
Deep garnet, velvety red in color. Aromas of wild-cherry jam, spice, and hints of cedar. On the palate, the wine is rich and dry, with black-cherry flavors. Round and long on the finish with cacao and spice notes.
