Vinification

Vinification takes place with indigenous yeasts produced with the same grape from the vineyard, which is harvested just a few days before to allow fermentation to begin and inseminate the full tank. The harvest is manual, as is the selection of the grapes. After vinification, the wine passes into a 50 hl barrel of Slavonian oak and rests there for more than 36 months. Then refinement in bottle for about 6 months. The production of “Diletta” is extremely limited: 6,600 bottles per year.

Colour

Col di Lamo’s Diletta has an intense ruby red color with light garnet reflections.

Nose

On the nose there are hints of small ripe red fruits flanked by elegant notes of balsamic and brushwood.

Taste impression

The sip is long, intense and subtly tannic.

Culinary advice

This Brunello di Montalcino from Col di Lamo pairs nicely with game meats like venison and rabbit.

Tasting Notes

The Great Hammersma

“Venice is beautiful, and its backyard matching wines are made. Delightful, that tarry red valpolicella, rose-scented, that subtle fruit, those dashing acids…

Hard to make, something so sophisticated. In practice, therefore, much valpolicella is more likely to be thin and acidic, or, on the contrary, unrepentantly powerful.

But here, in Cà dei Maghi, the home of the magicians, they know how to conjure up true Valpolicella. It may not be called that because only grape corvina was used here, not the otherwise required valpolicella grapes, but the result is like the valpolicella of your dreams.

Almost rosé-like in color, delicate and bashful in aroma, a taste of silk and lace. Ragfijn. Floats out the glass.

Be quick, because there is not much of it. 470 bottles. We tasted number 13, it was handwritten on it. Does not bring bad luck by any means. Except that we were sorry that we didn’t have bottle 14 to go on as well.”
