Valpolicella Classico Superiore “La Roverina” DOC
Approximately 70% Corvina (also known as Corvina Veronese), 20% Rondinella, 5% Molinara and 5% Oseleta, also a native variety from a single vineyard in the La Roverina area (alluvial soil, particularly well-draining and rich in mineral components) and about 20-year-old vines. La Roverina ages in large barrels for ten to twelve months. Lovely aromas of pressed flowers, juicy wild berries, and spices. Smooth tannins.
