Why we love it
A great valpolicella superiore made with selected organically grown grape. The valpolicella superiore, according to the Italian law, is a wine that has at least 12% of alcohol content, however, the appellation system was created when valpolicella wines had 11/11.5%, decades ago, before climate change was even a word, this is another reason why I believe the wine appellations are outdated. Nowadays, the difference is not on the alcohol content, it is impossible to find a valpolicella wine with an abv lower of 12%, but on the quality of the grapes, better, more ripe grapes and this is evident when drinking the wine, more round, less acidity, a bigger wine.
This valpolicella superiore not only is made with organically grown grape but it is also vegan friendly, check our blog if you want to know what makes a wine vegan, and it pairs pasta, charcuterie and cheeses, meat.
The artisan who made it

The vineyards in the Valpolicella, in the Canova area are located at 200/250 m. above sea level and the Soave vineyards in the heart of the Soave Classico area.
Il Canovino is four generations of vine growers and wine making, it is the place where tradition and modern equipment find their perfect balance, where grapes are looked after because great wines are made on the vine not in the winery. Il Canovino is slow made wines, they follow the natural time and wines are released only when they are ready, there is no rush, only by following each and every wine, a great wine can be made.
