Vajo is the result of a selection of Corvina, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, coming from the hilly grounds of the province of Verona, particularly bent to the production of those variety of red grapes. Carefully selected and hand picked-up at the end of September, to be subject to a partial withering in little wooden cases up to the beginning of November, then moved to the phase of pressing with a long maceration at controlled temperature. By the use of this technique we obtain a better extraction of perfumes and sweet tannins, and a well structured wine.

The intense, almost impenetrable colour and lively tonality are signs of a wine worthy of respect. The respect increases with the bouquet and the attention then focuses on the captivating characteristics of ripened fruit, caressed by delicately spiced wood, which leads the way to an elegant evolution. The palate lingers, with fine and lasting tannins, perfectly warm and savoury. An absolutely enjoyable wine.
