Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes cultivated in Montresor's vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico zone (north-west of Verona). The grapes are hand harvested at the end of October. The late harvested grapes are dried out for four months (until February of the following year) and then crushed. The must is fermented in stainless steel for four months. The wine is aged in Slavonian oak casks and small French barrique for two years.
Hints of coffee and chocolate on the nose with ripe crushed berry, bitter cherry and sweet plummy fruit on the palate - backed by notes of bitter chocolate. Rich and warming yet fresh and well-balanced, with supple tannins and a rich texture.
Excellent with red meats, game or hard cheeses, especially Parmesan.
