San Cassiano

Le Alène

In rural Valpolicella, in the middle of a small natural paradise among green olive trees and vines, the San Cassiano Winery was founded in 1964. Since every vineyard should have its own specific wine, the characteristics are carefully considered in all stages of production. The idea: each wine is a photograph of the vineyard to which it belongs.

This wine is made from dried grapes. The best grapes from the best vineyards on the estate are selected and placed in stables for drying. The grapes of the Corvina variety are further vinified after 40 days and afterwards the wine matures in barrique for about 18 months.
