Region Veneto, Italy

Grape variety 60% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 5% Molinara, 5% local grape varieties

Terroir The Single Vineyard “I Comunali”, 9.46 hectares, is south-facing, on a steep sloped limestone hillside in the Fumane valley

Wine making In January the dried, condensed grapes are softly pressed and cold macerated. Due to the very high sugar content and natural yeasts, a long, slow fermentation (45 days) is carried out in stainless steel tanks at the low temperature of 77 F (25°C). These tanks are specifically designed for the fermentation of Amarone to allow permanent contact with the skins. Aged two years in traditional Slavonian oak barrels (25-50 hl) and 3 months in bottle before release

Tasting Notes Deep ruby-red color. On the nose, intense, full , rich and perfumed bouquet. On the palate, rounded on the palate with classic black cherry flavours and a long, complex finish

People who enjoy Villalta’s red wine can’t help but feel romantic, reminiscing about Romeo’s famous declaration to Juliet on the balcony of her home in Verona. Villata’s wine is truly a declaration of passion, care and love for these grapes and land, tasted and felt in every glass. Like the winery’s signature Amarone, made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes from the classic area of Valpolicella. For an encore of flavor, high on the list is the Ripasso, a Corvina and Rondinella blend.
