Valpolicella Classico Superiore

Our Valpolicella Classico Superiore represents the full expression of the Veronese wine growing and the family’s enological traditions. It is produced entirely from native Veronese Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella varietals in low-yield vineyards at our historic estate in Arbizzano di Negrar, Verona. The grapes are harvested by hand, and after a long maceration and fermentation, the wine is aged for 14 months in traditional large oak barrels, followed by a short bottle aging.

Vivid ruby red in color, with intense aromas of blueberry, hints of cherry, licorice and lingering accents of cinnamon and pepper. On the palate, soft and warm structured tannins are balanced with nice acidity, long finish and fruity sensations.
