Description

Carmenere has a unique story to tell (see slide “THE GRAPES OF OUR TERRITORY: Carmenere”): a new wine with a great personality; a Veneto wine to present to customers as an alternative to Valpolicella. Inama is the first estate to create an important project with the Carmenere in the Colli Berici area and to give an identity to this variety with a new DOC: Colli Berici Carmenere Riserva (see: Oratorio di San Lorenzo). This product, at the moment, has no competitors in Europe. Philosophy: all the vineyards are set up to produce reserve wines. Each season, we decide which plot will be used for the reserve wines or for the entry-level wines.

Vinification

The grapes, harvested by hand, are delicately destalked, taking care not to break the skins of the berries. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel for around 20-25 days, at a controlled temperature of no more than 26°C.

Aging

At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in barriques that have been previously used two or three times (80%) and stainless steel (20%) for 12 months. “Camenere Più” is then blended and, after a period of 4 months in stainless steel, it is bottled. It continues to mature for at least 6 months before being released onto the market.
