Caratteristiche climatiche dell’anno
In 2016 in Valpolicella an early sprouting of the vines occurred due to a dry and mild winter; due to the heavy rains that fell in May and June the vines struggled a little during flowering. The season then stabilized in July, with summer weather and temperatures no higher than 35 ° C, moderate compared to the extremes of the previous year. This improvement allowed the vines to recover and face the phase of veraison with energy. From the second half of August until the harvest of the grapes, the climate remained stable, with a good temperature range between day and night, especially in hilly areas like ours. Thanks to the meteorological improvement in summer, the Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes reached maturity with an excellent sugar content. The considerable temperature range that characterized the period of veraison allowed us to harvest grapes with an excellent phenolic content and, in particular, rich in anthocyanins.
Wine with an intense dark red color, an elegant aroma, ripe fruit and spices and a flavor of persistent importance, warm, with an enveloping, harmonious softness.
Mareno goes well with all the traditional Venetian dishes, especially grilled red meats, roasts and stews. It is suggested to serve at a temperature of about 16/18 ° C and to uncork at least an hour before.
