Vinification|A rigorous selection identify the best bunches that will partially dry in fruttaio (Drying room) for 30 days. The alcoholic fermentation runs for more than 20 days, in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature (20°C). Regular delestages allow the maximum extraction of polyphenols from the skin and seeds for a suitable tannic structure.

Food pairings | Wine of great structure, perfect paired with red meat and game dishes. Recommended with hard-cheeses and the traditional veronese cuisine: risotto all’Amarone, stracotto di asino (donkey stew meat).
