This is the first example in Valpolicella of Corvina Veronese vinified as a single varietal.

"Intense, oak-tinged minerals hit the nose, accompanied by ripe plum and berry and hints of flowers. Full-bodied and chewy, with big, velvety tannins and fresh acidity that enhances the fruit flavors, leading to a long, well-balanced finish." Wine Spectator Sept.'06 - 92 points.
