Free Shipping On A Case. 4 stars Vivino

This wine is rated 4 stars on Vivino and for good reason! Ruby red in color, this Valpolicella Superiore offers fleshy aromas of wild berries, black currants, black cherries, and spices, with hints of chocolate. On the palate, the wine is dry and robust showing dark chocolate and fig with velvety texture. Corvina and Rondinella.

The vineyards of the Valpolicella Classico region are northeast of Verona, in the Veneto, spread out amidst a series of three pre-alpine valleys abutting the Lessini Mountains—the Fumane, Marano, and Negrare valleys.

The “Classico” designation refers to the areas where the very first Valpolicella vineyards were planted--all on quality hillside sites, which sets these vineyards apart from the rest of the Valpolicella region, which was expanded expanded beyond these three valleys after receiving DOC status in 1968.

What does all of this mean for wine enthusiasts? Generally speaking, the better producers of Valpolicella wines reside on the hillsides of the “Classico” area—so it’s worth seeking them out. Corvina is the primary grape used in production, while Rondinella and Molinara are allowed for blending.
