2012 Valpo 750ml
At Mora Estate, we take alchemy to the next level. In combining our passions for food, wine and art, we channel our energies to offer you a stellar wine in a hand-painted bottle that when paired with a delicious meal creates the perfect synergy.
The varieties are harvested together and the marriage of flavors begins at the inception of the wine. About a third of the fruit is placed on drying racks, which are stacked and left to dry for 120 days. The remaining two-thirds of the fruit is fermented on the skins with the lees from the previous vintage of our Amarone. This method, known as ripasso, or double
fermentation, adds more structure, body and flavors to the wine.
Layered, intriguing aromatics of plum, currant and mixed red berries merge with baking spices and dusty tannins. The palate hosts an array of bright, spicy flavors that linger on. Queen Anne cherry, pomegranate arils, bright strawberry and traces of rhubarb blend with hints of spice in the long finish.
Suggested Food Pairing
To pair this luscious beauty, try braised oxtail tortellini with a black truffle sauce, or assorted cheeses with membrillo.
