This Valpolicella is made with Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes picked during the last ten days of September from Novaia hilly vineyards located at 250-300 meters above sea level in Marano di Valpolicella (Verona). This wine ages 10 months in steel tanks and 2 months in bottle. The colour is ruby red. It has a fragrant nose with delicate, flowery and slightly fruity perfumes (fresh cherry), together with hints of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper). It shows a moderately alcoholic and tannic taste, good acidity and medium body.

The producer

Novaia is located in one of the most suggestive and luxurious areas of Alta Valpolicella, on the top of a gentle and sunny hill and on the left of the Marano Valley. At Novaia they adopt century-old traditions passed down over the years: already in 1908 the Modern Industrial Fair of the city of Verona awarded Paolo Vaona the Grand Prix and Gold Medal Diploma for the wines he produced. Today Cesare and Gianpaolo Vaona, with their sons, perpetuate his ancient tradition. The winery is run according to modern and yet ancient and traditional winemaking techniques, vineyards have been replanted to valoryze the tipical varieties and and many studies concerning drying grapes have been made.
