Marchesi Fumanelli Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC

¬†WINEMAKER’S NOTES:

Hand harvested and selected from 30-40 year old pergola and 8-10 year old guyot vines on the Squarano Estate. Wine harvest is done by careful hand selection when the grapes are mature around the end of September/mid-October. Refinement takes place for 8-10 months in French barriques followed by a minimum of 3 months in the bottle.

Brilliant ruby red color, with a pleasant aroma of dark cherry and mature forest fruit. Dry and velvety on the palate, with a hint of bitter almond. Soft presence of sweet vanilla and soft tannins. A well structured wine, with a soft, intense, long and persistent finish.
