Pra ''Morandina'' Valpolicella 2018 - Veneto, Italy
Varietals: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Oseleta
Orange zest, strawberries and cranberry pie are the basis of a light, fruity nose. The palate continues much in the same vein — light in tannin and body, but very fresh and drinkable now, especially lightly chilled.
The Prà winery, although only started in the early 1980’s, has come to be not only one of the top producers in the Soave appellation, but also one of the most important and visionary white wine makers in all of Italy (now expanding into red wine as well)! The winery is run by Graziano Prà, whose family owned their vineyards for generations but never commercialized the wines in bottles. The vineyards are situated in the heart of the appellation, in Monteforte D’Alpone. Besides Soave, the winery also produces Valpolicella and Amarone from a vineyard that he purchased and planted in 2001, and whose truly remarkable results are only now being discovered.
