Selected grapes from the three Cru vineyards (Calcarole, Pojega & Rovereti) make up the wine (hence the name). Barrels normally destined for the famed Calcarole and Villa Rizzardi wines - which were not bottled in 2012 - take up the majority of the blend. Grapes come from the 5-hectare, steep, rocky, terraced hillside vineyard of Calcarole as well as the gently sloping clay vineyards of Rovereti and Pojega in the heart of Negrar, the most celebrated of the communes in Valpolicella. Vine age is up to 36 years old.

Made from 100% dried grapes, that have been raisined in the drying room for 3½ months. Long, slow fermentation of one month (25°C - 30°C) followed by malolactic fermentation in oak. Maturation is 12 months in 2.25 hl oak barrels and 24 months in 25 hl oak barrels. Production is limited to 50,000 bottles.

Aromatic with ripe dark berried fruit alongside sweet spice, a ripe, rich style. The texture to is rich and round with abundant, ripe, dark berried fruit supported by fine oak. Well structured and maintaining good freshness.
