Valpolicella Classico 2020

With a beautiful ruby colour that maintains its transparency, this wine invites you to a tasting.


2020 has certainly not been a lucky year: the pandemic, hurricanes, and hail. Nature, however, was able to surprise us again this time, and we have to consider ourselves lucky to have been spared the violent weather that hit areas not far from us in the province of Verona. The ripening of the grapes proceeded somewhat in fits and starts, especially because of the rain in the summer. The good weather in September, however, in combination with our decision not to accelerate the harvest, enabled us to obtain excellent quality grapes. For the reasons we have mentioned, the harvest was prolonged and, like all long harvests, this made it possible to choose the best time to harvest in every single plot and for every single variety, from Corvinone to Corvina, and from Oseleta to Rondinella. The work we carried out in the last few weeks in the vineyard, but also in the previous months, to contain plant vigour and select the bunches, did the rest.

Tasting notes

With a beautiful ruby colour that maintains its transparency, this wine invites you to a tasting. There is more mature, accessible cherry on the nose, leaving notes of black pepper in the background alongside medicinal herbs. On the palate, the wine is brisk and succulent, well supported by acidity, and has a dry, very harmonious finish.


This type of Valpolicella is the perfect accompaniment to Italian antipasti, soups, pasta dishes and other dishes typical of Mediterranean cuisine. It also pairs well with roasted and grilled white meats and is ideal as a summer red to drink with fish dishes. Serve preferably at 16°C (61°F) and open the bottle shortly before drinking.


In stainless steel tanks until mid-February and in the bottle for 2 months
