Ca' del Monte Valpolicella Classico 2018 - Veneto, Italy
Varietals: 100% Corvina & Corvinone
Bright and youthful! In the glass it is a silky crimson dress that captures hints of violet. The nose is delightful- a gardener’s paradise of gentile fruits and violets. This dry wine is crisp and fresh, untouched by oak and a pleasant bitterness at the finish. A delicate wine that is too easy to enjoy.
Ca' del Monte is named after the area that hooks over the village of Negrar, north of Verona, in the heart of Valpolicella. It is easy to reach the estate of Ca’ del Monte through the panoramic narrow road that climbs the hills after San Peretto. The original building of the property is a 17th century ancient monastery which has been added to over the years.
The winery is enthusiastically directed by the dynamic and entertaining brothers, Umberto and Giuseppe Zanconte and has been cared for and owned by the family for generations. The farm consists of approximately 50 acres of vineyards, entirely located on the sun-drenched south-west hills. The perfectly positioned vineyard is planted with the typical red grapes of Valpolicella: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara and other native varietals, from which originate great Valpolicellas and outstanding Amarone. Authentic and natural wines that are classically true to traditions and the terroir.
