One of the black grapes of Valpolicella, here given the chance to stand in the starring role. The fruit is from 25 year old vines which gives it a bit of extra concentration. There's aromas of ripe red and black cherry, a touch of vanilla and a little earthy spice. The aromas follow on to the soft textured palate leading to a finish is gently spicy with a little lingering sweetness and balancing acidity.
Ideal with salty or spicy seasonings on grilled meats.
"This is a nice, uncomplicated wine from a co-operative in Veneto. The fruit is bright and it's very easy to drink. The kind of wine I'd sip while relaxing after busy workday. I'd have it with pasta and grilled pork."
