Denomination: Rosso Veronese i.g.t.

Type of wine: dry red

Production zone: vineyards of the Cordevigo Estate, at Cavaion Veronese, on the morainic hills of the hinterland of Lake Garda, in the vicinity of the historic Villa Cordevigo (18th century)


Type of soil: clay mixed with pebbles, typical of the morainic hills deposited by the glaciers that formed the area around Lake Garda

Grapes: Corvina 65%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20% and Merlot 15% Training system: Guyot with 7,000 vines per hectare

Harvest period: late; at the end of October

Vinification: the late-harvested grapes are subjected to a brief period of drying, using the traditional technique employed in the Province of Verona. Maceration takes place on the skins for 10-14 days at a controlled temperature, in order to enable complete extraction of the wine’s ripe fruit aromas


Maturation: 30 months in 700-litre cherry wood casks and tonneaux. At least 6 months’ maturation in bottle



Colour: a deep, bright garnet red

Nose: intense fruity perfumes that are reminiscent of cherries and wild berries (bilberries, dewberries), with faint hints of ca- cao, prunes and tobacco

Flavour: this wine is concentrated and mouth- lling on the palate. It has gentle, elegant and velvety tannins, and its fruit is rich, deep and long on the nish

Serving suggestions: this is a red wine of great personality and power, which goes well with meat dishes : roasts, grilled red meats,lamb and game. It is also excellent for accompanying mature cheeses


Alcohol: 15% vol

Serving temperature: 18°-20°C
