The color is ruby red with purple glints.
ON the nose it's flowery with notes of red rose and sweet violet, fruity hints of cherry, wild black cherry, plum, fruits of the forest
such as blackberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant and raspberry.
On the palate it is well-balanced, flavoursome and fresh. Intense and medium bodied despite its youth.
"Pure expressions of Corvina are increasingly common in Valpolicella and the 2011 Corvina Scaia provides an exceptional portrait of this indigenous grape variety. The wine exhibits a bright ruby color with purple and garnet highlights. On first nose, the dusty mineral notes are what make the biggest impression. Flint and brimstone slowly give way to small berry fruit, wild raspberries and white cherries. This is a beautiful wine that would drink well, slightly chilled, next to white meat or heavy seafood dishes. The wine wins high points for drinkability and overall freshness. It immediately evokes excellent food pairing possibilities. It’s not destined for long aging, but it tastes wonderful right now."
