Tommaso Bussola Amarone della Valpolicella Classico "Vigneto Alto"

Extremely low yields, prolonged drying and long periods spent in wood give rise to concentrated wines, rich in ripe fruit and spicy aromas.

Grapes:
Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Cabernet Franc, Dindarella, Croatina, Molinara

Grape harvest:
The grapes are harvested and carefully selected, in the small vineyard near the winery, from mid-September to the end of October.
It remains at rest until the middle of January when it has reached a high degree of drying.

Fermentation:
The must is left to ferment about fifty-five days with the marc and frequent pumping over is carried out.
After racking, it is placed in steel vats for another ten days.

Refinement:
After racking, it is placed in new French and Eastern European oak tonneaux, with a residual sugar content of 40 g/l. It remains there for thirty months on the skins. Here it remains for thirty months on its lees where it continues to ferment very slowly.
After racking and blending, it is bottled where it completes its refinement.

Characteristics:
Garnet red colour.
Elegant, soft, robust, with fine tannins that dry the palate.

Excellent with red meat and mature cheeses.
