The seven brothers and cousins involved with ILatium Morini changed their approach in 2004 and decided to keep the best grapes to make wine themselves.
Since 2004 the torrent of accolades, including an IWC Gold for their Amarone and glowing reviews from Jancis Robinson, would suggest that they made the right decision. Now at the forefront of the new wave production of Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone, the wines combine beautiful fruit concentration with fresh, bright acidity.
This brings you Amarone quality, but without the price tag.
The healthy fruit is hand harvested at peak ripeness and as with the grapes for their Amarone, they are air dried for 100 to 120 days in small baskets.
The grapes are then destemmed and crushed, followed by a controlled fermentation for about 12/15 days. Aged in 350-litre oak barrels for 12 to 15 months prior to bottling.
A well structured, complex wine with intensity, persistence and character. Super ripe black fruits, soft vanilla, warming spice and bags of freshness and tannin. Not one for the faint hearted.
