Who is Valpolicella Superiore for me?

“One more step, one more effort. He knew he had chosen the most difficult path to reach the top. He stopped for a moment, with his head against the rock wall. The sun beat down on the dark stone, which gave off a warm, mineral smell. He glanced at the route he had already taken and looked up at the ground he still had to conquer. He summoned up his strength and intelligence and set off once again.”

Our Valpolicella Superiore is ruby red and glides elegantly around the sides of the glass. The bouquet is bursting with juicy ripe cherries and hard graphite notes. Later, aromas of violet petals, red roses, spices and balsamic notes come through. On the palate, it is warm and well balanced. Flavoursome and fresh, the flavours detected in the bouquet are reflected on the palate. Its strong personality make it a particularly suitable match for succulent and elaborate meats such pasta sauce made with game, grilled pork chops, veal shin or the traditional oxtail stew "Coda alla Vaccinara".
