Blend of 70% Corvina and Corvina grossa, 20% Rondinella, 5% Croatina and 5% Oseleta. Medium Ruby with aromas black fruits, herb, tar and smoke. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and dried herbs with cacao and espresso. Fine tannins, lively acidity, long finish ending with fruit, smoke and mineral character. Very Nice! Tasting Sample!

2013: Classic Vallpolicella, a “half Amarone” ripasso. Dense, inky, mouth-coating, full-bodied without too much sweetness and with some barnyard funk. I only wish it had a bit more grip: was more enjoyable early on when the tannins were more evident. Could be a function of the good-but-not-great vintage, but I slightly prefer Quintarelli for this kind of pocket change ($95, VR).
