Massimino Rosso Verona IGT- Venturini

MASSIMINO ROSSO VERONA, VENTURINI- VINTAGE 2015

Simply a great wine: dense, impenetrable ruby red with garnet glints.

  • Massimino is a wine that expressed a high degree of compactness in the mouth, but also excellent balance: the alcohol content is offset by the freshness, and the perceptibly savory dryness of the tannins accompany the tail, with a happy return of fruit jam at the very end.
  • This wine is dedicated to our father, Massimino, a man with a steadfast, determined character whose rather brusque manner concealed a great heart and an invariably benevolent gaze. Massimino is a wine obtained from a brief raisining of the grapes that gives the wine an extra round, velvety character.
  • GRAPE VARIETIES: Corvina 70% Rondinella 20% Corvinone 10
  • ALCOHOL: 15% by vol.
  • VINEYARDS: Located in the Valpolicella Classica district in a hilly area about 250 mt above sea level – mainly southwestern exposure – planted in deep, fertile, moderately structured soil.
  • GROWING SYSTEM: Guyot – density of 5,000 plants per hectare – average age of vineyards: 30 years – average buds per plant: 10
  • YIELD PER HECTARE: 8,000 kilograms
  • Harvested and sorted by hand, generally in the second week of September
  • VINIFICATION: Raisining of selected bunches on platforms until November (loss of 30% of the weight) – pressing with destemming – maceration on the skins for 20 days, pumping over daily – fermentation between 10°C and 20°C – racking off and transfer to wood, where the wine matures for 24 months, part in oaken casks and part in tonneaux – aged in the bottle for 6 months after bottling
  • Food Pairing: Excellent with mixed platters of grilled meats, for an original pairing we suggest that you try it with spicy foods like a meat goulash or a spicy vegetable soup.

ABOUT VENTURINI FAMILY:

It was in 1963 that, in San Floriano, in the heart of the Valpolicella district, the winery Azienda Agricola Venturini Massimino first made its appearance on the scene. The indissoluble bond between love for the land and experience acquired in years of hard work and devotion became a business that has passed through the generations to the present time: grandfather Antonio and dad Massimino passed the baton ideally to Daniele, Mirco and Giuseppina, each with his or her own skills and interests, one for growing, one for wine- making, one for management. The timeline has lengthened but the history of the Venturini family has continued on its path of passion for the culture of the area and respect for the knowledge inherited from those who lived its history.

“Devotion and passion are an everyday experience, living as we do, in contact with nature, following and respecting its rhythms. It is with steadfast love and admiration that the family gaze proudly at the ripe fruit, remembering the gentle way grandpa Massimino would caress our faces with the rough, toil-worn hands of a man of the soil”.

The family look to the future, without forgetting their roots. The strength of the vocation keeps the Venturini family constantly in activity. Day after day, it is fed by the desire to give life to a product capable of reflecting what is truest and deepest in the soul of a company that has never forgotten its origins, receiving from them the stimulus to renew itself and respect the old teachings, to grow stronger and better.
