  • Score: 89 Vintage 2022 James Suckling While molinara is no longer mandatory in the blend, it is prized here for its capacity to impart freshness. This said, it detracts from colour and was not popular during the bold era of the 90's. Textbook freshness. Sour red mountain fruit doused with mint, bitter herb and anise. There is a crunchy sense of compression to the wine, too, thanks to the peppery tannins sewing up the seams. Delicious drinking. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2021 James Suckling Vibrant, juicy red berries, red cherries, licorice and roasted herbs brighten up the palate with light to medium body and soft tannins. This is fresh-toned, cheerful and extremely easy to drink a big glass. So much cherry in this well-made Valpolicella Classico! From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2021 Vinous Media Spicy and rose-tinged, the 2021 Valpolicella Classico comes to life in the glass with a peppery mix of wild strawberries, savory herbs and incense. This is energetic and pure in style, with pretty red fruits propelled by zesty acidity. This finishes classically dry and lively with lingering minerality and rose tones. This new spin on Speri Valpolicella is refined entirely in concrete. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
