  • Score: 87 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Valpolicella Classico is a pure and lifted effort that shows peppery florals up front, along with wild strawberries, geranium and hints of wet stone. It’s soft in texture with ripe red fruits supported by juicy acids. This tapers off clean and focused, revealing a hint of savory herbs. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast This has aromas evoking red-skinned berry, cinnamon and tobacco. The lively, light-bodied palate offers raspberry jam, star anise and clove alongside smooth tannins and fresh acidity. Enjoy soon Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2017 Wine Advocate A blend of Corvina and Corvinone (70%) with Rondinella, Croatina and Molinara, the 2017 Valpolicella Classico sees no appassimento and no contact with wood. In this manner, it maintains its fresh, easy and fruit-driven approach. You get a touch of extra sweetness and darkness thanks to the hot-vintage conditions. This is an easy-drinker to pair with a simple pasta. Some 55,000 bottles were made. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
