Valpolicella D.O.C. 2020
Valpolicella is produced from the vinification of fresh grapes, mainly Corvina and Corvinone. The harvesting period is very important for this wine, due to the delicacy of its aromas and to the fragile sensory balance in which acidity plays a fundamental role. Our Valpolicella is a very drinkable wine that expresses the traditional aromas of the valley, which range from cherry up to more or less pronounced spicy notes, depending on the vintage. The perfect olfactory balance is achieved with a short refinement in steel that emphasizes the sensorial peculiarities of the wine.
