Valpolicella

A very well defined Valpolicella Superiore produced in small quantites, this is a wine with great charachter and potential to age.
It opens up with distinct aromas of red cherry, strawberry and plums whcih give space to a bright and energetic attack, while the acidity keeps it in perfect balance. Very elegant ripe fruit tones and smooth, fine-grained tannins.
There’s plenty of energy across the palate and a very long finish.

Veneto

Veneto is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the north-eastern corner of Italy.

Just east of the lake and north of Verona is Valpolicella wine appellation: the fabled ‘Valley of Many Cellars&rsquo. Immediately east of Valpolicella is Soave, home to the eponymous dry white wine which now ranks among Italy’s most famous products. In the north-eastern corner of the region, on either side of the Piave river sparkling wine Prosecco reigns supreme.

DOCG and DOC

Veneto produces four DOCGs wines – Amazon della Valpolicella, Prosecco di Valdobbiadene,Recioto di Soave,Bardolino – of the several DOCs we find Soave, Valpolicella,Bianco di Custoza and Treviso among others.

Grape Varieties

Garganega, Trebbiano and Glera are the key white-wine grape varieties here, while Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella are behind the vast majority of reds. International varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc,and even Carmenere have proved successful here, as has northern Italy’s flagship white Pinot Grigio.
