The grapes used for Val di Toro wine are the result of several selections. Coming from the best fields, they are harvested by hand and further selected at the time of the picking. After de-stemming, fermentation starts in vetrified cement vats at a controlled temperature of 18°C, then allowed to rise gradually to a maximum of 28°C. During the maceration process of about 20 days pump overs are carried out as well as “delestage”. After malolactic fermentation, usually occurring in the spring, the wine is transferred into 30hl Slavonian Oak casks and allowed to age for approximately 24 months. It is then left to age in the bottle for a year before being released.

Tasting notes

Intense ruby red with violet reflexes. The nose is dominated by strong notes of fruit, particularly of wild berries, accompanied by hints of spices, liquorish, vanilla and black pepper. Lusciously fruity and with a hint of chocolate. A wine of great structure and fullness with fresh opening, soft and velvety, slightly sapid in the finish and enjoyably persistent. The richness of the tannins and good acidity guarantee long ageing potential, with the elegant tertiary notes likely to increase with the passage of time. Ideal accompanying dishes of red meat and game.
