A deep ruby red with purplish highlights, on the nose it elegantly displays the typical aromas of the grape variety such as raspberries and plums, along with very faint vegetal and spicy notes. On the palate it is broad and rounded, with velvety tannins and well-balanced fruit. The finish is long, with attractive notes of red fruit jam.
A vineyard in the hamlet of Le Prunee, at Sant’Ambrogio in the hilly Valpolicella Classica zone; it is south-east facing and the vines are Guyot-trained, on a soil rich in stones and clays.
Very versatile in its ability to be matched with food, it is ideal with white meats or lightly cooked red ones (like Italian-style roast beef) and with moderately aged cheeses. Try it also with fatty or flavorful fish, like stewed cod.
