from grapes growing on the Squarano Estate

Grape variety

Corvina Veronese 40%, Corvinone 40%, Rondinella 20%


The vines are 40 years on average and grow with the traditional Pergola system. The grapes are carefully hand selected and then placed into the traditional wooden plateaux and left to rest for 120 days with drying and concentration of all the elements.


The wine making takes place with the greatest respect for the grapes using a combination of traditional and innovative techniques. The grapes are de-stemmed and soft pressed in January, maceration with daily periodic pump overs follow for 30 days. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.


Refinement takes place for 48 months in French oak 500 Litre tonneaux and barriques and a further 8 - 12 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes

An intense ruby red with slightly brick coloured reflexes. Typical nose of cherries under spirit and sweet notes of vanilla, spiced with nutmeg and cocoa. Full bodied and warm on the palate, soft yet powerful and incredibly long lasting.
