    DESCRIPTION

    The grapes for La Giuva, 'Il Rientro' (50% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 25% Rondinella, and 5% Oseleta-Croatina) are placed in the wine presses to ferment at 22-24 degrees. After malo is carried out, the wine is mixed in with equal parts with fresh Valpolicella to create “il Rientro” (the return), this will go on to age for at least 12 months in oak barrels. This refinement continues in the bottle, to complete this insanely great bottle of plonk!

    The estate was founded by Alberto Malesani, famous in Italy as a former manager of both Fiorentina and Parma. While at Parma, he won the UEFA cup in 1999. His passion and intelligence are now channelled into this estate, where he is helped by consultant winemaker Lorenzo Caramazza, formerly of Cantina Valpantena. The name La Giuva is a compound of his daughters’ names, Giulia and Valentina, who are also involved in the business.
