In a nutshell:
Bright, light, unoaked and very drinkable ruby red Valpolicella from an enthusiastic biodynamic producer.
Valpolicella comes from the Veneto region of Italy just north of Verona and this wine is from the Classico, zone where the best vineyards are situated. It's a blend of mainly Corvina with Rondinella and Corvinone plus a small amount of the more obscure Molinara and Oseleta grapes. This cuvee is fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel, no oak ageing takes place, which highlights the fresh minerality and juicy cherry and plum flavours. It's a passionately biodynamic estate and their wines are bottled unfiltered, unfined and with a real integrity.
When to drink:
Brightly fresh and fruity it makes a good wine to drink by itself, but it also matches well with the likes of spicy sausages, game and white meats.
