Poderi Cam­popian - “Lu­nante” Valpo­li­cella Ri­passo Clas­sico Su­pe­ri­ore DOP


The name of the wine “Lu­nante” de­rives from the Ital­ian word “luna”, which in English lit­er­ally means “moon” and refers to the fact that grapes are har­vested only at night to main­tain their fresh­ness. Af­ter be­ing destemmed and crushed, the grapes are fer­mented and gently pressed and the re­sult­ing wine is then passed over the skins of grapes used for Amarone. Mat­u­ra­tion is in oak bar­rels for 12 to 18 months. With a deep ruby red color, the char­ac­ter of this wine is al­ready ob­vi­ous from its looks. On the nose, there’s a fruity bou­quet of ripe red fruit with notes of licorice and hints of spices. On the palate it is full-bod­ied, with pro­nounced fruity aro­mas and vel­vety tan­nins that add a pleas­ant com­plex­ity to the long fin­ish.
