Italian winemakers have been using dried grapes to enhance their wine for centuries. The Valpolicella varietal is one of the most famous wines enhanced with fermentation on dried skins. You will discover that fermentation with the proprietary GenuWine Winery Grape Skins brings out the wine’s firm tannins, supported by dark fruit tones any smokey undertones. The result is an Italian classic with all the makings of a powerful full bodied red wine. The aroma in the glass is reminiscent of farm fresh cherries backed by streaks of dark chocolate and toasted oak, which ages well into a wine of award winning potential. Compliments rich foods such as char grilled pepper steak, well aged cheeses and slow braised baby back ribs.
