Valpolicella, a “Valley of Cellars”, is probably one of the most important wine-growing regions you have never heard of.
Second only to Chianti in terms of total Italian DOC wine production, it is known colloquially as the “pearl of Verona” to locals, who enjoy everything from novello-style table wine to Classico and Superiore styles thanks to its plentiful bounty.
The Bonacosta Valpolicella Classico 2016 is stereotypically intense claret that displays cherry aromas on the nose with inviting and attractive hints of violets in the mix too.
It is fresh with good supporting acidity and excellent balance marked by soft and silky tannins.
Perfect with soups, pasta and risottos. Very good with red meat dishes or fresh cheeses.
