Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Valpolicella offers hints of blueberry, blackberry, cherry and chocolate which emerge gradually as the wine breathes. The potent tannins, which give structure to this product, are in perfect symbiosis with the velvety aromas of sweet spices and jam which envelop the palate and excite the senses.
"An intense nose, with prune, violets, charred meat and spicy toasted oak. Full-bodied, with chunky but well-integrated tannins and a long, floral and spicy finish."
"Inky black-purple color. Deep, dark, roasted aromas of plum, bitter chocolate and coffee bean, with a hint of green bell pepper. Rich and suave but also highly concentrated, with smooth flavors of black plum, espresso, graphite and cedar. A very full-bodied, smoothly tannic expression of Valpolicella."
