    Winemaker Notes

    Ruby red color. Aromas of cherry, violets, and pepper. Flavor is round, slightly acidic with a typical slightly bitter aftertaste due to the type of soil. Serve slightly cilled served as an aperitif, white meat dishes or white meat roasts.

    Mazzi
    Mazzi, Veneto, Italy
    Image of winery
    The Mazzi farm has been in the family since the early 1900s and lies on the hills of Negrar, one of the five towns in the area of the classic Valpolicella. In the 60s, after finishing his agricultural studies, Roberto Mazzi started to bottle wine under the name of Sanperetto, already subdividing the production after the name of the vines.

    The vineyards are located in an excellent position on the hills of Calcolare, Castel, Poiega, Sanperetto and Villa. The farm is now run personally by the sons Stefano and Antonio who combine tradition with innovation to produce Valpolicella Classico Superiore, Amarone and Recioto della Valpolicella Classico.

    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.
