Mai Dire Mai
The grapes are hand-picked and carefully selected and then placed in crates to dry for 4 months to achieve a higher sugar concentration. After pressing, pre-fermentation cold maceration is performed, whereas malolactic fermentation takes place in steel vats at a controlled temperature of 22-25°C for 40 days.
Ageing takes place in French oak casks (70% barrels of 225 litres and 30% in barrels of 500 litres, all new barrels) for 24 months.
A highly concentrated wine with great structure, elegance and strength. Still young but with great personality. The nose reveals intense aromas of underbrush, morello cherry, cedar wood, cocoa and hints of leather. The palate is warm and rich, enveloping and complex, with notes of ripe black fruit, cloves, dark chocolate and mocha.
A highly complex and fresh-tasting wine owing to its notable acidity. The tannins are decisive yet elegant with a charming and lingering finish.
With its 23 hectare vineyard, Montevegro gives life to “Mai Dire Mai” Amarone, Fear No Dark and Valpolicella: a hill at an altitude of 350 metres exposed on all fronts, overlooking the Val d’Illasi and the Val di Mezzane with the Lessini Mountains behind and a soil of basaltic and calcareous origin that guarantees optimal minerality. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta and Cabernet Sauvignon are grown here.
