    Winemaker Notes

    This wine is deep red, intensely perfumed and flavourful, with hints of overripe fruit and cherries. The natural assertiveness typical of Croatina gives added structure and character to this fine Valpolicella. It is a wine to accompany the whole meal. Because of its freshness it is a perfect match with Mediterranean cuisine. Its intensity and good structure also make it an ideal partner for a more formal cuisine, such as with roast or grilled red meats. Serve at 18°C/64°F.

    Paolo Boscaini, Veneto, Italy
    The viticultural history of the Boscaini family began long ago, in 1772, and proceeded at the same pace as the evolution of Veronese viticulture. From the original vineyard and cantina in the hills of Torbe in Valpolicella, the family has continued to acquire vineyards and today the family owns or manages 140 hectares of prime vineyards in the classico zones of the Triveneto. The Boscaini winery is specialized in the production of high quality wines from this region, and works with both indigenous and international grape varieties.    Dario Boscaini is a man of the soil. The Boscaini concept is simple yet profound. Great wine can only come from great vineyards. This is the principle upon which the Boscaini family has been buying and selecting land for over 200 years. True to the family philosophy, Dario Boscaini began selecting vineyards from the most renowned viticultural areas known as "microareas" over 30 years ago, with the intent of producing top-quality, unique wines.

    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.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
