Amarone della Valpolicella Docg “Ruvaln” by Adalia
The “Ruvaln” Amarone della Valpolicella from Adalia winery is a full-bodied and structured interpretation, with great typicity. Located in the Mezzane Valley, an area east of the city of Verona dedicated to the cultivation of olives, cherries, chestnuts, and vines, this wine is a product of the rich and fertile environmental context that has favored a flourishing agriculture for centuries. The name “Ruvaln” derives from an ancient Cimbrian term that means “stream”, referring to the numerous streams that flow in the area.
Crafted from a blend of Corvina Veronese (40%), Corvinone (40%), and Rondinella (20%), grown at an altitude of 400 meters on medium-textured limestone soils, the “Ruvaln” Amarone undergoes a careful selection of grapes followed by a three-month drying process. After that, the grapes are destemmed, gently pressed, and left to ferment spontaneously in stainless steel tanks for four weeks with skin contact. The wine is then aged for about 24 months in oak barrels of 25 hectoliters.
The Adalia “Ruvaln” Amarone della Valpolicella has an intense and dark garnet-red color. The olfactory profile is characterized by enveloping and intoxicating aromas of dried fruit, sweet spices, balsamic notes, toasted tobacco, and coffee. The taste is austere, silky, robust, rich, and warm, with pleasant freshness and velvety tannins. The finish is extremely long with fruity and spicy notes.
