40% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 25% Rondinella and 55 Molinara. The fruit comes from vines with an average age of 25 years. The vines grow in vineyards owned by the Vaona family, located in the hills of the Classic Valpolicella area, at an altitude of 200–250 metres above sea level. The vineyards have alluvial soil on calcareous basalts, favoured by excellent sun exposure. Some vineyards are characterised by terracing bordered by typical dry stone walls (called “marogne”).
Selective harvesting of the grapes in small wooden crates when they are ripe. The fruit then undergoes a traditional drying process for over 3 months. Slight pressing precedes a partial removal of the stalks. Maceration for 10–12 days at a low temperature of 1–2°C. A subsequent progressive increase of temperature kick-starts spontaneous alcoholic fermentation, which continues at a controlled temperature of 13–15°C in conditions of partial anaerobia for over 30–35 days. The wine ages in durmast oak barrels and an additional period of 5 months in bottles.
