Ruby red in colour, with purplish-blue highlights; the nose exhibits fragrant fruit with prominent notes of cherries, echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs, typical of Corvina and Corvinone, the historic varietals of this appellation. Whilst young it is impressively lively and playful on the palate whereas some two years on it expresses greater delicacy and finesse. This type of Valpolicella is the perfect accompaniment to Italian antipasti, soups, pasta dishes and other dishes typical of Mediterranean cuisine. Also pairs well with roasted and grilled white meats and is ideal as a summer red to drink with fish dishes.

This is a delicious and inviting red that opens on aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, baking spice and blue flower. The smooth, juicy palate offers ripe cherry, plum, cinnamon and nutmeg while fresh acidity and supple tannins provide polished support. Drink soon.

Easy, informal and bright with primary fruit, the 2016 Valpolicella Superiore is a blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta that ages in equal parts barrique and botte for 12 months. The bouquet is redolent of dried raspberry and blackberry with light shadings of tar, spice and smoke. In the mouth, the wine is streamlined and fresh, making it a good pairing partner to grilled sausage or bratwurst. With 120,000 bottles made, the wine is accessible and a terrific value buy.

Fragrant spiced plum, dried herb and smoke notes leap from the glass of this light-bodied, easy-drinking red. Drink now. 17,000 cases imported.
