Valpolicella Classico DOC 2021
Case of 12 bottles.
This wine is made from a blend of three grapes – Corvina (45%), Corvinone (20%), and Rondinella (35%) – from Degani’s own vineyards. Corvivone, a recently discovered mutation of the Corvina grape, replaces the traditional Molinara varietal of Valpolicella, as Corvinone is known for contributing more finesse and balance to the wine. The Corvina grape contributes the characteristic fruit aromas and flavours, with a touch of almond, while the Rondinella grape contributes volume.
After a 15-day, cool maceration to extract colour and bright fruit flavours and aromas, the wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel and lined cement tanks to retain freshness.
Tasting Note: Bright ruby colour. Fresh and drinkable, this wine has deep aromas of juicy cherries and plums. Medium-bodied, tasty and well balanced on the finish.
Menu Matches: This the perfect choice for guests who prefer fruitier style wines. It is versatile and will complement medium- to fuller-bodied dishes, and particularly tomato-based pasta dishes, and risotto with aged cheeses.
