Oseleta is a widespread vine in Valpolicella since ancient times, it is part of the Recioto and Amarone della Valpolicella wines, even if it is not explicitly mentioned in the specification. It has been gradually rediscovered and enhanced since the 70s.
The Oseleta seems to be so called because it is very welcome to birds in fact in Venetian dialect “osei” means birds.
The screw has a very low yield and the bunch is compact, short and cylindrical. The berry is medium in size, obovoidal in shape, with a thick, thick skin of blue-black color.
The wine from Oseleta is ruby red in color, intense. The nose is characterized by notes of cherry, blueberry and berries, hints that are followed by mineral tones and rich aromatic herbs. On the palate it is fruity, spicy, tannic, full-bodied, enveloping, persistent and balanced.
The Oseleta is present in our Vigolo vineyards.
