Case Vecie Valpolicella Superiore Doc - Brigaldara

Valpolicella Superiore Case Vecie derives from the vinification of fresh grapes, mainly Corvina and Corvinone. It borrows its name from the homonymous vineyard located in Grezzana - Valpantena, where the ripening of the grapes is subject to significant temperature variations between day and night: a climatic characteristic that gives the wine a particular spiciness on the nose and a completely unique polyphenolic profile. On the palate, acidity denotes an important structure, thanks to the rigorous selection of the grapes and to the winemaking techniques employed to extract only the noblest components from the skin. A wine which is capable of combining body, structure and excellent drinkability, revealing its sensorial complexity due to the slow ripening of the grapes.
