Descriptive notes: The Family Viviani grown on six acres of vineyard at Mazzano in Valpolicella. The exposure of the vineyards (South-Southeast) and their altitude (350-450 m.) guarantee the best environmental conditions for the cultivation of the vine. Added to these are the ventilated position and low humidity that favor the drying of grapes, from which we get the Recioto and Amarone. In the vineyard using cultural practices that allow the vine to reach an equilibrium critical to the quality of the grapes. This means a move away from synthetic products so that today the farm Viviani is able to participate in the 2078 EEC directive for environmentally-friendly agriculture. Moreover, extending this approach to the practices of the winery Family Viviani uses modern technology in compliance with the raw material and the most authentic regional tradition. For the production of this excellent wine, the grapes are usually harvested in the first week of October and put to dry for 160 days in the loft at 450 meters above sea level Vinification in stainless steel and subsequent aging in large oak barrels for 24 months. Ruby red color with garnet reflections. Intense and balsamic nose. Recall the plum jam, rhubarb, the walnut, caramel and raisins. Followed by hints of rose, violet, tobacco and chocolate. The palate is sweet, creamy; freshness and soft, round tannins softened the vein creating a perfect balance. Try it with soufflé with cream and blueberries.
