Vinification Details

  • The grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and the fruit character. The wine was then passed over dried grape skins, which creates a darker colour and adds an extra richness to the wine. The wine is then aged in oak before bottling.

History

  • Run by Luca Degani since 1995, the Cantina di Valpantena is now one of Italy's best co-operatives, with 700 hectares of vineyard producing excellent quality fruit.

Regional Information

  • Cantina di Valpantena is situated in the Valpantena, northeast of Verona. Known as the 'valley of god' to the ancient Greeks, this area is well-known for its high quality red wines, due partly to the soils but also because of the cool breeze that blows down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites.
