Details for Costaripa Valtènesi Groppello Maim 2016
Bottle size and vintage
The role of Mattia Vezzola for the Garda area of Valtènesi is not up for question. An authentic master of rosé winemaking, a true linchpin of local tradition, Vezzola produces some of the milestones of the entire Lombard oenology every year. The features of the Valtènesi rosé wines are those of the Garda clarets: thin and elegant wines, with a good consistency, but also capable of surprising with excellent substance.
This is due to the Mediterranean climate of the lake, of course, but also to the skilled hands of a generation of winemakers who owe much of their training to Vezzola. The heart of the Valtènesi di Costaripa is Moniga del Garda, halfway between Desenzano and Salò. Twenty kilometres of coastal lakes that benefit from 3000 hours of sunshine a year and breezes that perfectly regulate daily and seasonal temperature changes. In this area, which is among the most northerly in which citrus fruits can be cultivated, the subtle elegance of native vines, a mosaic of polished perfumes, is a natural fact.
Maim represents the best interpretation of the Groppello red, a native vine from the Valtènesi area (west bank of Lake Garda, today known above all for its rosé wines), which has been there since 1250. It is an engaging and refined wine, ruby red with light garnet reflections. The bouquet opens with intense aromas of violets, ripe fruit and small berries in the undergrowth; rounded in spices, it shows a balanced sensation of flint, pepper and olive wood. On the palate it reveals excellent balance with sweet and ample tannins that support the velvet and the gentleness which are typical of the variety. Excellent served with meat dishes such as the soppressa veneta, veal in walnut sauce, donkey salami, seasoned and spicy cheeses.
