“El Sengio” Rosso Verona I.G.T. Corte Merci is produced from grapes grown in hills of Verona. The “slight drying” of the grapes in the fruit sheds and the varied composition of the vines enhances the perfume and the body. Velvety and fruity, it is decanted into stainless steel vats and aged in wooden barrels.
Deeply red but brilliant at the same time.
Dry wine, with spicy aromas, hint of cherry and at the end a very delicate note of pepper, tipical of Cabernet grapes.
The vines are situated in the heart of Valpolicella Classica in the valley of Negrar in the hilly zone between 300 and 500 metres above sea level, facing south west and south east next to Jago. The terrain is clay and chalky with a good amount of rock fragments. The style of the grassy plant is “Double Veronese Pergola”.
We carry out the harvest between September and October, with the picking of the grapes carried out by hand. The bunches of grapes are placed into crates, known as “ploto” for a “slight drying” in the fruit sheds. In this manner, the grapes dehydrate and a higher level of sugar is obtained.
The winemaking, destalking and pressing of the dried grapes consists of emptying the crates one by one.
Fermentation occurs in winemaking containers made of stainless steel.
