This wine is ruby in colour with purple hues. On the nose it shows aromas of cherries, red berries and sweet spices and delicate hints of almond and violets. On the palate it is well structured and the sweet red fruit flavours persist, making it an easy wine to drink now. The finish is dry and persistent.
In northern Italy a ‘Brolo’ is a walled vineyard, similar to a French ‘Clos’. Cantina Valpantena directly farms three Broli which make up a total of 13 hectares. One of them is in the heart of the Valpantena valley while the other two are in Montorio, on the Val Squaranto side. Stefano Casali, Valpantena’s head agronomist, manages these vineyards. He has been able to reduce the use of spraying, carefully control water consumption and eliminate the use of weed killers. The knowledge and results that Stefano gains from these vineyards are then used to advise other Valpantena growers on their viticulture. These efforts have been formally recognized and the Broli vineyards are accredited with VIVA Sustainable Viticulture certification.
