Roccolo Grassi Valpolicella Superiore is made from a combination of fresh grapes and slightly dried grapes in equal percentage. The slight dehydration of the grapes lasts 20 days (percentage amount of grapes and number of days may vary depending on the vintage) in order to alter the peel/pulp ratio and therefore obtain a fresh fruit with a slightly higher concentration and rich with the noble components of the peel. This is followed by a 20-month aging in wood, assembling and bottling. Itʼs a very fine and complex wine , definitely an ambitious Valpolicella, full of character and personality, which enhances with aging in bottle.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Valpolicella Superiore impresses for its richness and the purity of its red fruit aromas. The blend is 60% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 5% Croatina. The wine is aged in both botte grande and barrique in equal parts. Dark raspberries and blueberries segue to leather, spice, toasted almond and barbecue smoke.
