Vine Age: 30 years average. Grapes are harvested during multiple passages through the vineyard for the optimum quality of the different grape varieties and for different styles of wine. A single vineyard bottling, grapes are pressed immediately after harvest. After 3-4 days of maceration, primary fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts. Wine is racked and then sits until February. Wine is racked on to the lees of the Amarone which starts a second alcoholic fermentation (this process is called ripasso). After this fermentation, the wine is racked into large Slavonian oak barrels for seven years.
" The process for this red is the same as that for the Valpolicella. The additions of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, and Croatina in this bottling make it a more fruit-driven counterpart to the earthy, spicy Valpolicella." - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant 55% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Croatina, Sangiovese
