Ruby red in color, this Valpolicella Classico Superiore offers fleshy aromas of wild berries, currant, black cherry and spice with hints of chocolate. Dry and robust on the palate with a velvety texture, this wine is recommended with antipasti or roasted meats. Ready to enjoy now, but can be cellared a few years.
"The 2009 Valpolicella Classico Superiore is another striking wine for the money. Dark, sensual and inviting, the Valpolicella impresses for its juiciness and fabulous overall balance. Floral notes add lift and refinement and lift on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016."
The Wine Advocate
"Deep ruby-red. Slightly austere nose of red cherry, smoked beef and herbs. Ripe and round in the mouth, with lively flavors of red berries and orange peel. Not the last word in complexity, but this wine's lovely acid/sugar balance and its bright, smoothly tannic finish make it an ideal all-around table wine. This delicious easy-drinking style is what Valpolicella ought to be but seldom is."
