Santi Solane, a blend of 70% Corvina and 30% Rondinella, is a high-quality, more intensely flavored and thicker textured Valpolicella, which has earned the Classico Superiore denomination. Part of the wine re-ferments on partially dried whole grapes enriching it with elegant, fruity aromas and exceptionally velvety tannins. The remaining part is made using the Ripasso method whereby it waits until the production of Amarone and then is added to Amarone pomace and left to rest for a few weeks while the wine picks up extra color, flavor and character. After blending, to harmonize these contrasting components, the wine matures for a few months in barriques and then in large casks. With inviting, fresh red berry, anise, herb and spice aromas, the wine has full, warm black cherry, and raisin and plum flavors on the palate, with linear acidity and soft tannins.
