Pergola corta veronese.

 

GRAPES:

Corvina, Rondinella.

 

YIELD:

12 tonnes / hectare

 

HARVEST:

Harvest begins in late September. We pass through

the vineyards several times to ensure grapes are

harvested only when they are mature. Only the

best grapes will be pressed. A portion of the grapes

are placed in crates to be dried for 15-20 days to

increase the proportion of sugar and aromatic

components whilst others are crushed a few hours

after being picked.

 

WINEMAKING TECHNIQUE:

The grapes that have been dried are fermented

separately from those that were pressed fresh. The

fresh grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats

whilst the dried ones are left to ferment in wooden

barrels. Only after 10-12 months, and after having

assessed the characteristics of the wines, do we

decide how to blend the two. The wine is then

bottles and left to mature for five to six months

 

FOOD & WINE MATCHING:

This wine pairs well with pasta and rice dishes especially with sauces of game or mushrooms. It is also good served with grilled red meats and medium mature cheeses.

Valpolicella "La Corte Del Pozzo"

$23.99Price
  • The Valpolicella is one of the most important wines traditionally made in our

    area and therefore represents something special for our family. The local grape varieties are beautiful, generous and allow us to create an exceptional wine. The vineyards are located in the stunning Illasi Valley that falls in both the Valpolicella and Soave appellations. This means that our winery can take two of Italy’s most important and most characteristic wines across the globe. Our Valpolicella is bottled under the “Corte del Pozzo” brand that expresses the importance of our relationahip with the local grape growers who would meet around the well on our property back in the 1900s. Today we work with the same families we collaborated with 30 years ago. With the Corte del Pozzo line we didicate a parte of our history to these people.

     

    Valpolicella is a vibrant ruby red colour. Initially, this wine gives all its

    vitality and strength. After the first year of aging it starts maturing and the

    tannins and acidity combine with the flavours of ripe fruit. This enriches the

    wines with a final touch of softness. The bouquet is bursting with aromas of red fruit jam and fresh red fruits with hints of vanilla. On the palate, the wine is dry, smooth, well-bodied and balanced.
