Product guide note

The word “Seccal” on the label refers to the specific vineyard from which the grapes come from for this wine. This Valpolicella is full bodied with flavours of dark chocolate, raisins and some red cherry fruit. At its absolute best with food.

Production information

Producer: Nicolis

The wines run the whole range of the Valpolicella spectrum, from the anything but basic Classico and Classico Superiore, which establish a house style of vibrant, bright cherry fruit and ripe, elegant tannins, up to the epic dry Amarone and sweet Recioto. These latter two are made from grapes that are dried out almost to raisins in aerated lofts, concentrating the intensity of flavour.

Production note

This wine, obtained from the grapes harvested in the vineyard with the same name, is left to re-ferment with the skins of the grapes used for Amarone and Recioto. These are still intact and slightly sweet. In this way the body, colour and alcoholic content of the wine are increased. It stays for 16 months in casks of Slavonian oak and 6 months in bottles before being sold.
