  • Introduction

    • Without a doubt, this wine represents the jewel in the crown of our company.

      Produced in very limited amounts and on very rare occasions, it constitutes the emblem of the land from where it hails. Recioto, the symbol of Verona, is the wine from which originates this concentration of fruit. In the forty-year history of the company, Vigna Seré has only been released for six vintages: 1988, 1990, 1994, 1997, 2003 & 2004.

      Vigna Seré possesses immense opulence and density, with preeminent hints of plum, black cherry, raspberry, chocolate, and coffee. A good level of sharpness supports the refined tannins that, with their sweetness and elegance, gift the drinker moments of intense emotions. Persistence. Nuances of truffle, tobacco, and new leather wrap around the finish.

      Unique in its class, the essence of this wine epitomizes all the passion and experience that we have developed.

    • Fermentation: Fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of around 28°, which are equipped with a sophisticated computerised system which allows for automated punching for a period of around 15 days, including the final maceration which takes two days.
    • Aging: After the racking process, the Vigna Serè rests for a few days in stainless steel tanks which, thanks to their particular shape, allows for easy decantation and, subsequently, is placed in new barrels to mature for 36 months.
