Why we love it

A step above the just valpolicella, this valpolicella superiore, superiore because made with the best, selected organically grown grape, is fruity on the nose with plenty of black fruit. Elegant, full and smooth on the palate with a never ending finish.

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 the average valpolicella wine had 11/11.5% alchool content, decades ago, before climate change was even a word, this is why we believe that wine appellations are outdated. Nowadays, the difference in quality cannot be determined by the alcohol content, it is by now impossible to find a valpolicella wine or any wine, even white, with an abv lower of 12%, but should be determined by the quality of the grapes, better, more ripe grapes, lower yield, and this is evident when drinking the wine, balanced, less acidity, a bigger, rounder wine.

This valpolicella superiore is also vegan, read our blog if you want to know what makes a wine vegan, and it pairs perfectly pasta, charcuterie and cheeses, meat, a very versatile wine for plenty of occasions.

Our favourite red has always been Amarone but under recommendation from Andrea we tried this red. Certainly not as big & bold as an Amarone but beautifully balanced, very smooth with lovely fruity flavours. Very easy to drink and would recommend it.
