Fasoli Gino - 2016
When you first taste this wine you are struck by its strength and liveliness, then after a while it develops and the harmony between the tannins and acidity integrates with the mature fruit giving it a touch of roundness. The perfume is characterised by red fruit notes and berry jam, with a light vanilla note. The taste is dry, velvet like, medium-bodied and well-balanced.
This wonderful, organic Valpolicella is made from the traditional Corvina and Rondinella grapes, some of which have been dried to concentrate the sugars and aromatics. The fresh grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats while the dried grapes are fermented separately in wooden barrels. The wine can be cellared for up to five years from the vintage.
