A wine with an intense ruby red colour with garnet hues. On the nose, there is a vinous aroma with strong cherry notes, typical of corvina, enveloped by a delicate alcoholic hint that makes it all the sweeter and more pleasant. The palate has hints of cherry, a strong savouriness, and a bitter aftertaste, all softened by a slight residual sugar and a strong alcohol content.
It pairs nicely with grilled meats, roasts and mature cheeses such as our Monte Veronese D.O.P.
The production of this wine starts with a careful selection of grapes in the vineyard. The best, most mature and qualitatively healthy grapes are then selected. The exposure of the vineyards gives the resulting grapes a high sugar content, as well as a very high content of varietal aromas, which will develop in the wine first in fermentation and then in maturation. Vinification reflects tradition, i.e. there is a fermentation with prolonged must/wine contact on the marc, of around 30 days, which in some vintages of exceptional quality, can even exceed 35 days. Subsequently, the wine is stored in steel for about 6/10 months and then finished in oak barrels for about 4/6 months depending on the vintage.
For the production of this wine, only the best grapes are used, selected from vineyards on the slopes of Monte Baldo, in the locality of Terre Rosse (hence the name), at an altitude of 500 metres above sea level. The soils are mostly clayey and marly with a high percentage of skeleton. The forms of cultivation are Pergola Doppia and Pergola Semplice.
