Morari Valpolicella DOC Superiore
Morari Valpolicella DOC Superiore comes from the traditional practice of "appassimento" (grapes drying) typical of the Valpolicella area. Selected Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes are dried on plateaux placed in rooms that enjoy a natural ventilation due to the convective thermal currents of the foothills. The vinification requires particular care, both for sugars concentration of the musts and for the low external temperature. The maceration lasts about 20 days, with daily fermenting must pumping overs. After racking, since it is not possible to carry out the malolactic fermentation because of the high alcohol content, the wine ages in small oak barrels for about 12 months.
Morari Valpolicella DOC Superiore is a sumptuous red wine, but of excellent drinkability. Red and black fruits such as cherry, blueberry and blackberry emege from a great aromatic bouquet that tends to balsamic essences and fine spicy notes, such as white pepper. Minerality and appealing softness of the pulp, accompanied by a silky tannin, guarantee a persistent finish. The complexity and structure of the Torre d’Orti Morari guarantees a significant agein potential and to the positive evolution of the exuberant fruity notes that characterize it in its youth. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 18-20 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
