"Il Velluto" Valpolicella Classico Superiore Doc 2011

"Il Velluto" Valpolicella Classico Superiore Doc 2011 - Azienda Agricola Meroni

A "baby Amarone" fine and elegant

On the Sengia and Maso estates at la Grola, the Meroni Farm obtains “IL VELLUTO” from Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara autochthonal grapes

 

Valpolicella Classico Superiore has a 14-14,50 % alcoholic strenght, a ruby red colour, an ethereal bouquet and a perfume of cherries, red current jam, liquorice, tamarind and spices

 

It is warm, fine and persistent to the palate with an almond end taste, a “velvet” texture of great body and roundness, elegant with everything at meals and with red meats, roasts and cheese, wonderful to drink now but in continual evolution for a medium maturation

 

Rigorously hand-picked at the beginning of October, natural drying of the grapes for 30 days, pressing in the second half of November, drawing from the vat in December and maturation in small 20-25 hl oak barrels from Slavonia before bottling. Refining in the bottle for at least six months
