GRAPES AND VINIFICATION
Produced with 100% Oseleta , an indigenous Veronese grape variety, grown in the Cordevigo estate. The grapes are dried for 40-50 days in special rooms (fruttai). This wine matures in tonneaux
Oseleta has a deep purplish ruby colour. It is reminiscent of macerated red fruits with hints of white chocolate, flowers and spices. In the mouth the wine is warming, rounded and velvety with suggestions of ripe red fruits as well as pipe tobacco and walnuts.This is a complex, introvert wine, which reveals himself in the course of time
Excellent with game or very mature cheese or as a wine for enjoying on its own after dinner.
TYPE OF SOIL: clay mixed with pebbles, typical of the morainic hills deposited by the glaciers that formed the area around the lake, in the province of Verona
GRAPES: 100% Oseleta, an indigenous Veronese grape variety with small bunches that are particularly suited to undergoing the appassimento (drying) technique. The name derives from the word “oselét”in the dialect of the Veneto, which means “little bird”, because this is a grape which, when ripe, is particularly tempting for the small wildfowl of the local countryside.
