REGION OF ORIGIN
The historically “classic” zone of the Valpolicella.
The soil is mainly clay-limestone with a high proportion of rock and stone : this particular type of soil yields wines of great finesse and elegance, characteristics essential for long living wines.
The vineyard is on a hillside at an altitude ranging from 150 to 300 meters above sea-level with an exposure to the east.
Vintage generally begins in the last ten days of September and continues until the end of October.
FERMENTATION AND AGEING
The “Decennale” is a Valpolicella Classico Superiore made from grapes from our “Casalvegri” vineyard, the best grapes are selected from this vineyard to make this wine and not our Amarone. This wine is only made in the very best vintages when the climatic conditions enable us to obtain outstanding, structure, acidity and quality of tannins. The wine is aged in 1000 litre oak vats for 10 years.
This is a wine of great aromatic complexity, structure and persistence on the palate. Aromas of spice and forest fruits define the bouquet while the palate is fresh and long.
