About the producer:
For generations the Scamperle family has dedicated itself to growing grapes, and, over the years, to gradually increasing the number of grapevines.
Today the family owns twenty cultivated hectares, situated here and there among the most renowned places of the Valpolicella Classica Doc area: Fumane Cà Carnocchio, I Progni e Cà Melchiori, Sant'Ambrogio Conca D'Oro and in San Floriano Monte Masua. The type of grapes produced are the most classical types of the zone: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta, a small quantity of Molinara, and Croatina.
The vineyard has grown slowly and carefully, always respecting the local technique which is sensitive to nature and has followed nature's rhythm to bring out the originality and characteristics of the grapes.
Aromatic, with hints of pink peppercorn, orange peel and dried rosemary, this firm, savory version is framed by light, taut tannins, offering flavors of crushed currant, blackberry and game. Smoke-tinged finish. Best from 2019 through 2024. 1,666 cases made. - Wine Spectator Magazine 90 Points
