Montresor San Pietro Valpolicella DOP

2017

In a Nutshell

A classic, youthful Valpolicella with approachable ripe cherry fruit

Tasting Notes

A fresh, juicy red with aromas of ripe red cherries and a hint of the gently herbal character typical of Valpolicella. A fresh and youthful palate showing a touch of sour cherry, and subtle spicy notes.

Production Notes

Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes cultivated in selected vineyards in Valpolicella. The vines are trained on traditional trellises and planted in marl soil. Grapes are picked by hand. The grapes are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 16 degrees with 36 hours maceration on the skins to extract light tannins and colour. The wine is matured for 6 months in large Slavonian oak casks, fined with bentonite and lightly filtered before bottling.
