Valpolicella Valpantena Superiore DOC
Valpolicella is a wine deeply rooted to its territory of which it bears its name. A red that has a centuries-old history, the starting point from which the winemaking tradition of the whole Valpolicella stems. From the hills of Costa Arente, caressed by the winds of the Lessini mountains, this light red takes on the elegance typical of Valpantena wines. A wine of good freshness and medium structure, pleasantly fruity and with an enthralling drink.

The grapes are harvested by hand in the first half of October, at a late ripening stage. Destemming and selection take place on the sorting table before pressing. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about a week at a controlled temperature, followed by a short maceration on the skins. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in steel and about 20-30% is passed on to second passage French oak barrels. This is followed by a one year refinement in steel and at least 3 months in the bottle, before being put on the market.
