This red wine comes from the Poiga, Sanperetto, Villa and Calcarole vineyards, which are owned by the company and situated in the area of Negar in the heart of Valpolicella. The harvest begins in the first week of October, and the grapes are crushed and de-stemmed as soon as they have been gathered. They are then fermented in steel tubs under a controlled temperature of 25 degrees centigrade for about twelve days. Refinement takes place in medium-sized oak barrels and lasts for a year. Before being put on the market the wine rests in the bottles for two months. It has a beautiful ruby colour and an aroma that is fresh and fruity. The taste is fine, fresh and lightly acidic, with an underlying bitterish note.
