PROFASIO
Valpolicella Superiore
Ruby red colour.
At the nose black pepper, fresh cherry, vanilla and liquorice notes.
On the palate fine balance of tannins, long finish.

Valpolicella Superiore Profasio is the product of Camilla’s research and passion for the identity of her land. This wine is the soul of Massimago. A delicate drying process of the grapes confers balance and harmony to the wine. The fresh and crispy mouthfeel does not cover the pleasantness of a ripe and fleshy fruit savoured slowly. It is a ruby red with intense cherry, candied fruit, balsamic herbs and black pepper notes. A wine well-balanced between body and elegance, with a persistent and velvety finish.
