Valpolicella Doc Superiore 2016 - Corte Canella
VALPOLICELLA DOC SUPERIORE
"It's "The Wine", according to Corte Canella. A wine that gives emotions and joy. We wanted an engaging wine, which unites and celebrates with us on great occasions. This is how our Valpolicella Superiore was born: a wine that knows how to fill hearts."
Concentration, richness and smoothness happily come together in this wine, which is the result of careful work aimed to enhance its features to the point of a sensory explosion. The flavours are round and enveloping and fill the mouth with their qualities. The structure and the alcohol content give this particular wine great elegance and disclose its value. Clusters undergo a long and delicate drying process, which is tied to the cycle of the seasons, and lasts 40 to 50 days. The aging in toasted oak barrels allows the wine to rest for 18/24 months, gaining a deep and lively colour and an intense flavour that reminds of cherries and berries. Bottle aging lasts at least six months and brings the wine to a complete maturation, giving it a perfect balance. An elegant, well-proportioned blend of Corvinone, Corvina and Rondinella
