Monte Dall'Ora Camporenzo Valpolicella Classico Superiore
40% Corvina/30% Corvinone/20% Rondinella/10% Oseleta & Molinara. The Camporenzo vineyard is essentially the family's "backyard", three hectares planted in rolling San Pietro hills behind their house. Like most of Monte Dall'Ora's vines, these are pergola-trained and grown on terraces, in this case east-facing ones with loose, sandy, limestone-rich soils. The fruit is hand-harvested in the first part of October into small bins, crushed and placed in wooden vats, where they are foot-trodden once a day. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with indigenous yeasts and maceration lasts for 10-12 days. The wine is aged for 4 months in small oak barrels.
