A Super-Veneto made from a blend of Corvina and Syrah grapes. As the vines are double guyot trained (rather than the traditional Pergola), there was no need for the ripasso technique to be used. The grapes were de-stemmed and crushed, after which fermentation took place between at 20-28°C. Maceration lasted for 11-12 days during which pumping over took place daily. Malolactic fermentation took place in November. The wine was then racked into oak where it matured for 16 months before spending a further 2 months in tank before bottling. The wine was then matured in bottle for ten months before release.
Corvina is an Italian variety grown predominantly in the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Corvina is blended with several other grapes to create the classic wines from this region – Bardolino and Valpolicella, plus Amarone and Recioto. When vinified fresh (ie not dried), it usually produces medium bodied wines with a light crimson colouring, sour cherry notes and a classic slight bitter cherry and almond twist on the finish. The small berries of Corvina are low in tannins and colour extract but have thick skins that are ideal for drying and protecting the grape from rot (for Amarone and Recioto).
