Additional Information

Producer Profile
The Biscardo Family have been making wine from their base in Soave for over 150 years and are currently led by brothers Maurizio and Martino. During the course of Maurizio's long and illustrious career, he has consulted for well known wineries around Italy and in doing so he came across the vineyards for their Puglian wines. Both the Pugliese and Veneto wines are characterised by an almost dangerous drinkability, aromatic purity and exceptional value for money.

Viticulture
The vineyards are on the hills around Verona at around 150 to 250 metres above sea level. The soil of Valpolicella Ripasso can generally be distinguished by either brown and red soil on silts or on loam rocks; compact red soil on basalt; or compact red soil on Eocene limestone. There is always a high calcareous concentration, with lots of stones in the first half metre of the ground.

Winemaking
Hand picked up and placed in wooden cases, either at dawn or at late in the evening, to avoid the intense heat of the day. Aged in oak barrels for 12 months, with a light refinement in barriques.

Oak Treatment
Time: 12 Months; Type: Slavonian tonneaux; % oaked: 40 - 60; % new oak: None;

Food Matching
Pair with mushroom dishes, such as mushroom risottos, or with slightly spiced sausages and hard cheeses.
