CASE VECIE VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE DOC

“Located in Grezzana, north of Verona, at an altitude of 450 metres above sea level, lies the Case Vecie (Old Houses) vineyard. Abandoned for a long time, it was entirely replanted in 1994. Taking advantage of climate change, our friends at Brigaldara winery decided to buy the property and plant Corvinone and Corvina to make this amazing Valpolicella. Here, the ripening of the grapes is subject to important thermal inversions between day and night that give the wine a particular spiciness to the nose and a unique complexity.”

Tasting notes

Brilliant ruby with hints of cherry, balsamic notes of vanilla and spices. Soft taste and good structure. It is a full-bodied wine with a balanced alcoholic content. On the palate, acidity denotes an important structure, thanks to the rigorous selection of the grapes and to the winemaking techniques employed to extract only the noblest components from the skin.

Food pairing

Meats, steaks, mushrooms, aged cheeses, grilled vegetables

Area of production

Case Vecie is the name of the vineyard located in Grezzana (450 mt/a.s.l., south-easterly exposition), where the ripening of the grapes is subject to significant temperature variations between day and night: a climatic characteristic that gives the wine a particular spiciness on the nose and a completely unique polyphenolic profile.

Production process

The grapes are selected in the vineyard and placed in 200kg-crates. During fermentation, the wine is always in contact with the grape skins. It is pumped over twice a day with a delestage half way through fermentation, favouring colour extraction. During fermentation temperature is kept between 22°-24° to preserve its fresh and delicate aromas. The wine is aged from 8 months to 1 year in large wooden barrels.
