Wine description

Discover prealta rossa, a red wine from Verona IGP that captures the essence of the region’s finest grapes. The grapes are carefully selected in the province of Verona and undergo a light drying process before fermentation with maceration for 10 days at a controlled temperature of 20-22°C. The wine is then matured for 8-12 months in French oak tonneau, resulting in a bright red color and very fruit-forward aromas of cherry and blueberry jam. The taste is full-bodied, with a good persistence and an elegant finish with reminiscences of jam. Enjoy prealta rossa at 18-20°C and savor the spicy notes of black pepper, licorice, and vanilla that add further complexity to this exquisite wine.
