Corte Sant’ Alda is fast becoming one of the top-flight producers of Valpolicella and Amarone. It is owned by Marinella Camerani and is named after her daughter, Alda. Marinella has 15 hectares of certified organic vineyards located in the foothills of the Lessini Mountains, near the town of Mezzane, about 30km north-east of Verona.
Each wine at Corte Sant’Alda comes from a specific vineyard, chosen according to the specific grape variety, the vine’s age and the preferred training system – so as to ensure a well-defined quality.
Marinella Camerani’s Demeter-certified biodynamic estate.
Pale-medium ruby. Nutty and spicy, with ripe cranberry and red cherry, dried herbs and just a hint of earth. Peppery, fairly firm tannins with a sappiness. Brisk and quite firm, which may benefit from a year or so to settle.
