|Wine maker notes
|The wine undergoes 11-days of maceration in vats at a controlled temperature and with programmed remontage. In March, it is re-fermented over Recioto Amarone skins, following the traditional Veronese technique called Ripasso. The wine is aged 75% in large Slavonian oak casks and 25% in French oak barriques for approximately 18 months. It is then refined in bottle for a minimum of 90 days.
|Grape Varieties - 80% Corvina Veronese and 20% Merlot
