(2016) A classic blend of the three main Valpolicalla grapes, Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, this dark and youthful wine has cherry and blackcurrant aromas, a touch of sweet tobacco-spiced plum too. On the palate this is quite a grippy, vinous wine, the dark vine fruits set against nicely grainy tannins, and the bright acidity that typifies Northern Italian reds present and correct. There's a warmth on the finish too, in a most enjoyable and classy Valpolicella.
