Speri Valpolicella 'La Roverina' 2016
Just a little north west of Verona and near the shore of Lake Garda – this is one beautiful region.
A blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 5% Molinara and 5% Oseleta. This blend of select native grapes hails entirely from the historic vineyard of La Roverina, which has been in the Speri family for many generations. After a year’s aging in oak barrels and a few weeks’ bottle age, the intense, ample bouquet recalls vinous and almond notes, the palate is structured and silky-textured, with layered flavours and aromas, and great food versatility all around.
