Why we love it
Made with only the best, organically grown, grapes, manually harvested from the oldest vines, at about 250m altitude, the grapes are dried for about 100 days resulting in a 60% weight loss, the grapes are then checked again and only the non damaged ones are pressed. The wine is then left to ferment for about 30 days and wooden aged, big barrels, for 3 years plus another 12 months of bottle ageing.
The resulting organic and vegan friendly Amarone della Valpolicella is big, complex, spicy with notes of cherries and prunes. In the mouth, the wine is full, velvety and smooth with a long finish. This is a wine that would benefit from decanting and pair perfectly meat, games and mature cheeses.
The artisan who made it
Il Canovino is a family winery, is husband and wine, Antonio and Francesca and their vineyards, cultivated following organic practices in the Valpolicella and Soave area. The vineyards in the Valpolicella, in the Canova area are located at 200/250 m. above sea level and the Soave vineyards in the heart of the Soave Classico area.
Il Canovino is four generations of vine growers and wine making, it is the place where tradition and modern equipment find their perfect balance, where grapes are looked after because great wines are made on the vine not in the winery. Il Canovino is slow made wines, they follow the natural time and wines are released only when they are ready, there is no rush, only by following each and every wine, a great wine can be made.
