Deep ruby red colour with pronounced 'tears'. The nose is of black cherries and liquorice with hints of vanilla. The palate is dry but full-bodied and full of ripe cherry fruit with soft, rounded tannins which carry it through to a lingering finish.
The harvest takes place at the beginning of October and the must is fermented in stainless steel. In March the wine is macerated with the grape-skins left over from the production of the freshly made Recioto following the traditional technique of 'ripasso', which enriches the structure and flavour of the Valpolicella. Half the wine is then aged in large oak casks and half in new barriques.
