"It's pure Black Forest Gateaux in the mouth."

  •   Veneto, Italy
  •   Smooth Red
  •   Corvina, Molinara, Rondinella
  •   2015

Husband and wife team, wonderfully - though confusingly - called Francesco and Francesca, run the estate in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico zone, in Marano, with a total production of 70,000 bottles. Great care is taken in the vines, and the vineyards look a little bit more like gardens. The selection of grapes for the Amarone come from vines planted 30-40 years ago using the region’s old Pergola Veronese system. They use only small oak barrels to age the wines and have no international grape varieties, basing all their wines on Corvina and small percentages of the other two local grapes. 

"It's pure Black Forest Gateaux in the mouth with edges of cedar and a wonderful whack of creamy oak on the finish. Fine tannins, great structure and a lush quality to it. Once you've tried this wine you will be hooked!'' Tom Harrow, Wine Guru.

Its elegance and strong character make this wine a fantastic gift.
