SAN MICHELE, VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE DOC, TENUTE UGOLINI

An elegant, graceful and versatile wine, reminiscent of a quote by Federico Fellini: “A good wine is like a good movie: it lasts a mere moment and leaves a taste of glory”.

 

 

The vineyard

The vineyard is nestled into the San Michele hill, 200 metres above sea level, in a south-eastern location characterised by the so-called “marogne – dry stone walls typical for the region. The lime-stone rich, skeletal soil is perfect for enduring red wines.

 

The grapes

Corvina gentile, Corvina grossa, Rondinella and Oseleta.

 

The winemaking

At the end of the pressing and the following fermentation, the wine starts a period of 24 months of tertiary complexation and refinement tat improves the balance, elegance and aromatic complexity.

 

The wine

A brilliant ruby red colour with an aroma of red fruits such as red and Marasca cherries; a mix of delicately sweet yet spicy notes reminiscent of cocoa, nutmeg and vanilla. An intriguing, smooth and very elegant wine.

 

Food pairing

Medium-aged cheeses; cured meats, even spicy and slightly ‘fattier’ ones; fresh pasta with a hearty minced meat sauce, even from game; risotto; red meat; Also highly suitable for oily fish such as eel, sardines or anchovies.
