DOC Valpolicella Superiore
||40% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 30% Corvinone
|Composition of the land
||White and yellow limestone marls of morainic origin, at 400 m above sea level.
||Our mapping of the soils in the large Maternigo property has enabled us to identify certain plots of land that, due to the characteristics of their terrain, their exposures and the results given by the vines, have revealed themselves to be real crus. Thanks to the innovative study of soil and plant characteristics we carried out at Maternigo, each individual vine is constantly monitored and the ripening of the fruit is checked on a daily basis. Careful selection of the grapes gives rise to a wine that is both fruity and spicy, with well-modulated structure and concentration and sufficient acidity to give it good keeping potential.
||Vinification: non-destalked whole grapes. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration: 20 days/temperature 20/23° C.
||Maturation in 20/25 hl Slavonian oak casks: 14 months. Bottle ageing: 6 months.
||To pair with red meats, game, dry-textured, mature cheeses made with low-fat milk.
