A complex nose showing notes of black cherry, plum, violets, coffee and raisins. The palate is smooth and rounded, with a richly textured mid-palate and a medley of spice, dried fruit characters and supple tannins. The wine remains elegant, being well-integrated and rich, but with delicate floral notes and a long and complex, dry finish.

This long established Veronese family company, headed by Giorgio Montresor, is producing wines which increasingly rival the offerings of the region's more fashionable names. The estate wines, from 100 ha of vineyards in Valpolicella and Garda, offer remarkable value for money, particularly the Capitel della Crosara vineyard near Negrar which produces fine, richly-flavoured Ripasso and a generous, classically-styled Amarone with great concentration and texture.

Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes cultivated in selected vineyards on the hills of the most ancient part of Valpolicella. The vines are trained using the traditional trellis system and the grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness towards the end of October.

The late harvested grapes are air dried in wooden racks in special lofts until February of the following year when they are crushed. The must is fermented in stainless steel for 4 months. The wine is aged, part in French oak casks and part in a barrel, for 3 years and then spends a further 6 months in bottle before release.

Goes with red meats, game, hard cheeses, especially Parmesan and blue cheese.
