Deep ruby red, intense nose of aromatic wild berries, ripe cherries and dried plums. The prelude to the palate is gentle, balanced, balsamic and fresh. Velvety tannin structure and great balance, long and tasty finish.
Selective hand picking, followed by maceration. The fermentation as well as the malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. After a few months, dried Amarone grapes are added. This causes a second fermentation, which increases the alcohol content and gives the wine extra extract. Then the wine matures for 12 months in French oak barrels.
The story of the Massimago estate began in 2003 when young agronomist and entrepreneur Camilla Rossi Chauvenet started her own project at the Massimago winery, which has been owned by her family since 1883. The property is located in Mezzane di Sotto, one of the wildest and most unique valleys of Valpolicella. On an area of ??14 hectares Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella vines are cultivated, always taking into account and in harmony with nature. Classic Valpolicella wines such as Amarone, Valpolicella Superiore, Valpolicella Ripasso and Valpolicella DOC are produced. With lots of energy, creative ideas and pep, Camilla manages to bring new life and a lot of character to these classics. The product line, named after nobles (Marchesa and Conte) stands out with funny and unconventional labels and makes the Valpolicellas also attractive to a younger generation. Exceptional and extremely high-quality wines - an absolute insider tip from the Valpolicella!
The vines grow at an altitude of 100 to 350 meters above sea level. The combination of limestone, loamy soil and clay marl enable a consistently high quality of grapes.
