Only grapes produced in the company's Poiega vineyard are used in this red wine. The vineyard is situated in the area of Negar in the heart of Valpolicella. The harvest begins in the second week of September and the grapes are gathered in wooden trays and crushed after 40 days. Fermentation takes place in steel tubs under a controlled temperature of 25 degrees centigrade for about fourteen days. The wine is then matured for two years, half in oak casks and half in "tonneau". After it has been blended, the wine is laid in bottles for three months before being put on the market. It is a strong ruby colour and has a complex aroma with a note of dried fruit, wood. It tastes warm, velvety and notably well-balanced.
