Bella, anche se non memorabile, interpretazione del territorio della Valpolicella. Forse manca un po' di corpo, ma comunque è una bevuta piacevole. Al naso cogli i sentori tipici dell'uva Corvina, ben in ordine e in fila, senza difetti o cedimenti. Forse è in bocca che uno si aspetterebbe qualcosa in più. Nel senso che non si trova la ricchezza di struttura di certi Amarone, e scivola un po' troppo in bocca, nonostante il buon nerbo e stoffa.
