Elegant, soft & velvety. Blueberry & cherry jam with liquorice, balsamic & eucalyptus
Tasting Notes : The Castelforte Valpolicella Superiore is an elegant wine with an excellent structure, which expresses intense notes of blueberry and cherry jam, liquorice, and pleasant balsamic notes of eucalyptus on the nose. Medium bodied with soft tannins and a pleasant , medium to long finish. The soft and velvety tannins can be perfectly combined with first courses, with elaborate sauces, grilled red meat, and well-aged cheese.
Produced from Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone grapes, with small amounts of other local grape varieties. Vinification takes place in Ganimede fermenters, which uses the carbon dioxide gas that is generated during fermentation, where the grape skins and wine are continuously mixed in order to extract colour and tannins. The wine is aged partly in stainless-steel tanks, and partly in large oak casks for twelve months.
