    Winemaker Notes

    This beautiful Valpolicella is made of 80% corvina veronese/corvinone and 20% rondinella. It has a brilliant ruby red color and has aromas of cherry blossoms and spices. The mouth feel is tremendous while the taste is elegant and harmonious with cherry blossoms, black tea, and spices. This wine is perfect as an aperitif and excellent with semi-mature cheeses, antipasti, pasta with red sauce and main courses of red and white meat.

    The Borgias on SHOWTIME
    Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons will star in the epic drama series as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of The Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power within Renaissance-era Italy.

    The Borgias will be a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most intriguing and infamous dynastic families. The series begins as the family's patriarch Rodrigo (Jeremy Irons) becomes Pope, propelling him, his two Machiavellian sons, Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance.

    About the Label Design
    The Borgias wine label design combines the elements of tradition, simplicity and elegance. Created by emerging graphic designer Elliot Cohen, the inspiration for the labels was the Borgia family crest. The bull symbolized the power of the Borgia family in Italy

    Borgias, Veneto, Italy
    2010 Valpolicella
    Borgias wines are made by Monte del Fra, a family-operated winery comprised of 118 hectares of property situated in the beautiful hills of Lake Garda, near the historic center of Verona. Exclusively owned and operated by the Bonomo family since 1958, the winery is guided by the synergy between terroir and indigenous grapes. It follows that the Bonomo family produces the traditional varietals and blends from the Verona region of Veneto, including white wines like Custoza, Garganega, Lugana and Soave and red wines like Bardolino, Corvina, Valpolicella Classico, Ripasso and Amarone.

    The Bonomo family's passion for winemaking was born in the countryside. Its members' firm conviction is that great wine can only be created in the vineyard.

    A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
