In our opinion, wine is made to be enjoyed and to convey emotions.
We want all our wines to taste excellent and for them to be the best companions to a special occasion, as well as to make an everyday occasion special. Why? The wines we remember are about the moments, the people, and the places. Our wines reflect the unique features of our native grape varieties and the local geology and climate. In a word, our TERROIR.
Valpolicella Ripasso is obtained through a second fermentation of the Valpolicella Classico in contact with the dry skins left from Amarone's pressing. This process lasts about 15 to 20 days and is followed by 24 months again in French Oak. The "ripasso" method and the aging process gives the wine a more robust structure and a milder acidity.
Tasting Notes: Clean, with an intense ripe, red fruit sensation and an elegant and persistent finish.
The Valpolicella Classico Superiore is made with the best bunch of Corvina. Corvinone and Rondinella from our Fraune estate, in the Classica area. If Rondinella proves to be particularly important for the shades of color it gives to the wine, Corvina and Corvinone, rich in Polyphenols and tannins, press theirs in the structure and aroma. After the fermentation, the wine aged in French Oak, 12 months in big barrels. During the winemaking process, no sugar or other substances are added to the wine to give the purest expression of our estate's grape and terror.
Tasting Notes: Dry, Velvety, and harmonious
Pinot Grigio is a rich dry white wine, fresh with vibrant aromas of pear and apple and hints of flowers. The highly mineral feel is the signature of this wine and gives it a great personality, allowing a versatile wine for food pairing.
Tasting Notes: Fruity and savory, full bodied and elegant in the mouth.
The Amarone Della Valpolicella DOCG is obtained with a unique technique that has been used since Roman time, called “appassimento.” The grapes are naturally dried for 3 to 4 months in the drying facility. During the drying process, the grapes dehydrate, losing 40-50% of their original weight, with a concentration of all their substances. Maturation is completed in French oak for 42-50 months. The wine is then aged in the bottle for a year.
Tasting Notes: Dry, warm and intense with a vigorous character and a pleasantly clean finish.
