A stunning Valpolicella with intense ruby hue. On the nose there are aromas of black pepper, fresh cherry, vanilla and liquorice. Following to the palate with a fine balance of tannins and a velvety, persistent finish.
Wine Of Origin
Light-Bodied Red Wine
Nestled in the valley of Mezzane since 1883, Massimago has a solid history in the Valpolicella region. Renovated and relaunched by Camilla Rossi Chauvenet when she took the reins in 2003, Massimago has been producing 100% organic wines since 2008 and has been certified as such since 2014. Grape Varieties: 65% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella Region: Mezzane di Sotto / Veneto / Italy Soil: Limestone – clay/marl soil Altitude: 330 to 1,250 feet above sea level Vinification & Yield: 50% of the grapes are harvested by hand into trays which are dried for 1 month. The remaining 50% are cool fermented after harvesting without any drying process. During the fermentation, cold maceration continues for 4 days in which contact with the skins develops the aromatic, fruity bouquet. The malolactic fermentation takes place quickly and the wine is stored in French oak barrels and barrique in our cellar for 12 months. Ageing continues for 12 months in the barrels. Further ageing in the bottle for six months
This fresh Valpolicella is the perfect way to start an evening. Pairs well with gnocchi, beef-filled tortellini or pizza.
