Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Cavolo 2017 Brigaldara
Brigaldara is the viticultural treasure chest that encompasses the different souls of Valpolicella. One thousand years of history, one hundred and twenty hectares of property of which forty-seven are planted with vines, distributed in three different areas of the province of Verona: Valpolicella Classica, Valpantena and Valpolicella Orientale. A historic family, the Cesari, who have owned it since 1928, committed to the enhancement of a rich and heterogeneous estate's viticultural heritage. A team of young oenologists and agronomists dedicated to the study and personalization of each intervention in the vineyard, to enhance the varietal expression of the terroirs and micro-terroirs that make up the different souls of the wines produced here. In the winery's vineyards, the attention to safeguarding the environment and reducing the impact of cultivation is extreme: targeted fertilization and only with manure, chemical interventions linked exclusively to the presence of the moth, use of only copper and sulfur as phytopharmaceuticals, and a continuous search for sustainable agriculture.
Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Cavolo from Brigaldara winery is an intense and complex red wine made from dried Corvinone 21%, Corvina 59%, Rondinella 17% and other 3% grapes. It is warm, elegant and harmonious.
It has a garnet red color. The nose has aromas of jammy fruit, black cherry, cherry, vanilla, with hints of withering and hints of spices. In the mouth complex, elegant and velvety.
