Winemaker's Notes

The characteristic color, bouquet and flavour come from the Corvina grape, the most important variety of Verona. The wine is intense, velvety, yet well-structured, with a typical hint of cherry. It is mellow and mouth-filling, with a long finish.

It may be served with many dishes. Perfect with soups, pasta and risottos. It goes very well both with simple and more substantial dishes based on red meat, or with fresh cheeses. It can be aged 5-6 years. Recommended drinking temperature 18°-20° C (64°-68° F).

Alcohol: 12.15% by volume
