About the Producer

Originating in 1964 at Lazise, on the banks of Lake Garda, the House of Lamberti was the first to propose a new, modern identity for the wines of Veneto and, in particular, those of Verona. Typical examples are Bardolino and Valpolicella, as well as Amarone. The white wines include Lugana, Soave and Custoza.


Grapes

Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara


Vineyard

The grapes come from selected parcels mainly on the hills of Valpolicella Classico; the vineyards are trained by the “spalliera” (Vertical Shoot Positioning) system on clay-limestone soil, rich in gravel.


Vinification

The grape bunches are picked by hand into wooden boxes during the first ten days of October; vinification by the red wine method is carried out with 10 days maceration and frequent pumping- overs; fermentation takes place by carefully regulating the temperature at between 18 and 28°C.


Ageing

After racking the wine is decanted into small barrels where the malolactic fermentation takes place. Next it is “ripassato” on (passed over) the pomace of the Amarone where it re-ferments for about 10 days. It then matures in Slavonian oak casks for 12 months.


Tasting Notes

Deep ruby colour, with garnet tints; typical bouquet with strong, ripe, fruity notes, complex, with hints of vanilla and wild cherry preserve. The flavour is complementary: warm, clean, concentrated but soft with an elegant, lingering, spicy, lightly toasted aftertaste.


Analysis

13.5% alcohol vol.


Food Suggestions

Wild poultry (pheasant, Guinea fowl, partridge, etc.), venison, grilled meat, lamb and ripe cheeses.

Serving temperature: 18-20°C.
