WINE MAKING

In October, we harvest by hand the lightly overripened grapes. Later, we press the grapes and we put the pressings into steel tanks. The juice ferments with the grapes skins for about 15 days. During fermentation the wine and the grapes skins are mixed daily by hand with pump-over into the lap and delastage to get the maximum out of the product. The wine is produced with “Ripasso” method

 

AGEING

About 3 years into small old french barrels

 

TASTING NOTES

It has a ruby red colour. It is winy, fruity with ripe fruits and spicy flavours. On the palate it is dry, warm, soft, full bodied, with rounded tannins perfect blended with ripe red cherry and plum tastes

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Important first courses and meats. The recommended drinking temperature is between 15°-18°C

 

NOTES

Giago is our Valpolicella Ripasso and it reflects perfectly its ancient traditional production method. Moreover, it is easy to recognise the typical Valpolicella Ripasso flavours.
We dedicate our Ripasso to Giago, the ancient name of the area called Jago, where we live and the wine is produced. Our family has been living here for about five centuries and has always worked the land producing the typical products of the zone: wine, cherries and extra-vergine oil.
