Crushed & Cured

ILatium Morini, Valpolicella Superiore, DOC, Campo Prognai, Veneto, Italy, 2017


A well structured, complex wine with intensity, persistence and character. Super ripe black fruits, soft vanilla, warming spice and bags of freshness and tannin. Not one for the faint hearted.

Destemmed and crushed, followed by cryo-maceration for 48/72 hours. Controlled fermentation, delestage and pumping over for 12/15 days. Aged in 350-litre oak barrels for 12 to 15 months. Followed by ageing in bottles for 6 months.

Today the winery cultivates 40 hectares with plots spread across Valpolicella and Soave. Healthy fruit at peak ripeness is hand harvested and air dried for 100 to 120 days in small baskets.
