Ca dei Maghi, Valpolicella Classico Superiore, Ripasso. 2016
Ca dei Maghi is a small farm in the hills of Valpolicella making very small quantities of the most exquisite wines. Although started in the 1950's it is only since 2011 when Paolo Creazzi took over the reins that this estate has gone from being 'good' to outstanding. Each year he seeks to express classical Valpolicella at its very best while his natural inclination to experiment and try new things is shown in the small range of IGT wines produced.
Brilliant ruby colour. Intense flavour with hints of mature cherry and sweet spices. Harmonious, fresh, sapid and dry in the mouth with a typical aftertaste of cherry. It requires strong and decisive flavours to be ideally enhanced like game, precious grilled meat, oven-baked lam and strong cheese.
This wine is a blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara
