In a Nutshell

Incredibly fresh, pure cherry fruit in this Valpolicella.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby red, with fresh red cherry perfumes. Flavours of sweet cherry and chocolate with a smooth and supple drinkability, make this wine an easy drinking delight.

Production Notes

The grapes are fermented at 25-28°C in stainless steel tanks for 8 days. After fermentation, the wine spends a further 15 months maturing in 65 hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels before bottling.
