Brand Description

The Nicolis family winery, founded in 1951, employs organic farming practices throughout its 42 hectares of vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico zone, located partly on the estate in San Pietro and partly in the hills overlooking the town. No herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides are used. And all of the wines at Nicolis are produced using ambient yeast, making their labels some of the purest expressions of Valpolicella viticulture found in the market today. Winemaker Giuseppe Nicolis is the second generation of the family to make wine on this small, family-owned and managed estate. For the winery's flagship Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Ambrosan (made from a classic blend of the following grape varieties: Corvina 70%, Rondinella 20%, Croatina 10%), the fruit is sourced from one of the estate's higher-lying vineyards (roughly 300 meters a.s.l.), ideal for the production of acidity-driven Amarone, with rich flavor and immense aging potential. The cru Seccal is the winery's "Ripasso", the traditional winemaking technique of the second fermentation that adds color, tannins, complex flavors and palate texture to the wine.

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
