A fantastic producer based in the Veneto hills just north of the city of Verona, Villa Belvedere produce wonderful fresh and exciting modern wines from this classic region. A master of Valpolicella and Amarone, Villa Belevdere’s winemakers masterfully blend the native grape varieties of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, creating extremely rich, velvety reds, brimming with raisin, cherry and balsamic flavours.
The bunches of grapes that are used for this wine are hand-harvested and then vinified with frequent remontage. The fermentation takes place at controlled temperature (28 to 30°C). The wine is then matured in wood for 13 months before bottling.
There is a deep ruby colour, with garnet tints. It has a typical, distinctive and complex bouquet with hints of cherry conserve and vanilla, balsamic, floral and ripe fruit notes. The flavour is dry, warm and concentrated with an elegant, spicy (black pepper) finish. Particularly robust and rich, it can keep for a long time and still improve.
