Details

Varietal: Dry Red Table Wine

Region: Valpolicella

Region Description:

This important red-wine region in Veneto ranks just after Chianti for Italy's total DOC red-wine production. The wine is made primarily from Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes, although four other varieties can comprise up to 15 percent of the blend. Valpolicella's standard DOC wines are rather light and very fragrant and fruity. Those labeled superiore have a higher minimum alcohol content and are aged for a minimum of 1 year. The best wines are generally those labeled classico, which indicates that they come from the steeply terraced vineyards of the inner classico zone.
