Wine information

A cuvée of about 70 % Corvina, 20 % Corvinone as well as 10 % Rondinella and Molinara from the single vineyard Campo Casal Vegri. The vineyards are located in the Classico zone at an altitude of 150 to 300 meters. They face east and have a soil of clay and limestone with a high stone content. The Valpolicella Classico is fermented in stainless steel at a maximum of 25 °C and left on the skins for ten days. It then matures for nine years in 3,000-litre wooden barrels. This is a late release from a particularly good vintage, a wine that was bottled exclusively in magnums after the maturation phase.

Nose

The Valpolicella Classico Superiore Campo Casal Vegri Decennale 2008 shows in a very impressive way the potential of the situation of the Campo Casal Vegri possesses and how outstandingly this wine can develop. In the glass the Valpolicella present from the first moment. The usual sour cherry and wild berry fruit is much more discreet in this mature wine from 2008 than in the current 2016, but it is still present. More obvious are notes of underbrush, tobacco and recently freshly wetted dry wood. A little leather is found, earthy notes are present as well as dried herbs and a hint of truffles.

Mouth

This Decennale joins on the palate the ripe sweetness with the still clearly present freshness and juiciness. Also in the mouth the Valpolicella earthy and brings dried wood notes into play. At the same time, however, it has a wonderfully fine tannin, an elegant body, and with increasing warmth, more and more fruits reminiscent of dried black cherries and plums can be found. Accompanying this impressive performance is a hint of clove, cinnamon flowers and floral elements that shape the long fading finish. The good thing is that you have to open a magnum of this wine directly.
