Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC

Valpolicella Classico Superiore is a red wine that is produced from grapes selected exclusively in the Valpolicella classic area, which is the oldest and most historical one. The harvest takes place from mid-September to the end of October and the grapes are carefully selected by hand in the vineyards. The bunches rest for 40 days in special boxes in large ventilated rooms dedicated to the drying phase. During the first days of November the crushing and subsequent fermentation takes place. After racking, the wine is then refined, which takes place exclusively in oak barrels for a period of no less than 12 months. It presents itself with the characteristic ruby colour; an intense and persistent bouquet, with fruity notes of cherries and plums, pansy and spices with hints of black pepper and vanilla. The flavour that characterizes it is fresh and fruity, well-balanced with an elegant structure, highly enjoyable thanks to the perfect harmony between acidity and tannin.
