This traditional sweet dessert wine from the Valpolicella region is made from Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes dried for three months and, after vinification, the wine is aged in oak barrels. A full-bodied red wine, with rich and complex aromas and a perfect balance of alcohol and sweetness. Serve with cheese, biscuits or cakes, or as an accompaniment for fireside conversations
Deep, opaque ruby red colour. Intense, fruity nose with aromas of fruit preserved in spirit, marasca cherries, prunes, candied fruit and sweet spices. Voluptuous and mouth-filling on the palate with soft tannins, sweetness that is not at all cloying and good acidity to give balance. Long fruity finish with a touch of cinnamon.

5 years maintaining the sweet-fruity style. With longer ageing the style changes gradually, developing mature and refined spicy aromas. After 15 to 18 years, the flavour becomes similar to that of a Port.
