96/100 Decanter (2016 vintage)
93/100 Falstaff Magazin (2016 vintage)
Kerin O'Keefe (Wine magazine) - "The dense palate offers prune, licorice and a touch of cinnamon alongside velvety tannins. Aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, porcini mushroom and cooking spice lead the way. Enjoy through 2022."
Decanter - "The palate brings a tobacco note, integrated oak and a peppy carriage of acidity. Long and modern. Scents of dried flowers, plum, tobacco, black cherries, coffee, herbs and menthol. "
A Valpolicella of great complexity and elegance that continues the more than centennial family tradition of the Ripasso method. The style is consistent with the typical expression of the three grapes Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella and with the terroir of the area. The Ripasso method is applied in a delicate way with the conduct of a second long maceration and fermentation on the freshly pressed Amarone marc to give the wine greater complexity, soft structure and intense color. The wine is aged for 2 years in large oak barrels.
With notes reminiscent of Amarone, the wine is bright ruby red in color. Intense memories of cherry, blueberry, licorice and with spicy hints of cinnamon and pepper. On the palate it is soft and warm supported by dense and velvety tannins and excellent acidity. Long and fruity finish.
