Sant'Urbano Appassimento Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore
Sant'Urbano Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore of Speri winery is one of the most impressive Valpolicella Superiore of Veneto production. It is obtained from 70% Corvina Veronese, 20% Rondinella, 5% Molinara grapes and other native varieties grown in Monte Sant'Urbano vineyard, a beautiful hill in the municipality of Fumane.
After careful selection, the grapes are left to dry for around 20-25 days, concentrating the flavours and enriching the aromas and softness, which find the perfect balance after approximately two years of ageing. Maceration takes place in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 20-24 °C for about 10 days with daily pumping over and délestages. The must completes the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in vitrified cement tanks, before being transferred into 500 liters of Allier oak tonneaux, to age for the following 18 months and refine in the bottle.
Sant'Urbano Appassimento has an intense ruby red colour with a broad and enveloping bouquet of red fruits and aromatic herbs. Spicy hints, solid and decisive taste, it is soft and elegant. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 18 °C.
