“IL FUORILEGGE” BIANCO VERONESE IGT
This a white wine which has hints of light pink due to the fermentation method. It’s made exclusively from selected bunches of red grapes that are fermented as a white wine without the skins. The grapes used the same used for the highly valued reds of the region. The resulting wine is a wine rich in aroma that reminds one of the lingering fragrance in the vineyard during the cherry harvest.

It’s a lovely wine, pleasant, balanced, and elegant. The production is limited, as the grapes are specifically selected and pressed extracting only about 30% of the available must. The remaining must is used to make Valpolicella Classico. This is one more reason to taste the differences between the two wines.
