The Details

In a Nutshell

Fresh, fragrant Valpolicella from Graziano Prà's high altitude vineyards.

Tasting Notes

A sappy, fragrant un-oaked Valpolicella with intensity yet delicacy from the low yields of the Morandina vineyards. Herbal and red berry aromas with notes of wild thyme lead on to a ripe wine with layers of raspberry leaf, licorice and cherry characters. Fresh, with taut balancing acidity and a bitter plum twist.

Production Notes

After searching for the right site, Graziano Pra began the new millennium by fulfilling his long term ambition and purchasing a 13 hectare vineyard near Mezzane in eastern Valpolicella. At 450m altitude, the steep glacial slopes of poor, rocky yellow marl soil produce meagre crops and the cool nights ensure a long ripening period. No chemical treatments are used.

During September and October the grapes are harvested, de-stemmed and undergo 15 days maceration on their skins. Delestage is followed by malo-lactic fermentation in stainless steel.

Producer - Azienda Agricola Prà

This 20 hectare estate in the commune of Monteforte D’Alpone in the very heart of the Soave Classico district is run by Graziano Prà.
