Ruby red in colour, with purplish-blue highlights; the nose exhibits fragrant fruit with prominent notes of cherries, echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs, typical of Corvina and Corvinone, the historic varietals of this appellation. Whilst young it is impressively lively and playful on the palate whereas some two years on it expresses greater delicacy and finesse.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Valpolicella is a well-executed wine and a great value. It opens with a dark, brooding appearance and shows immediate aromas of smoked bacon, dried fruit, leather and tobacco. There's more happening on the bouquet here than virtually any other Valpolicella red at this affordable price point. It's surprisingly generous in the mouth with long tones of ripe cherry, spice and grilled herb. You'll be surprised to know that it only sees stainless steel. Drink 2013-2016.
