Just a little north west of Verona and near the shore of Lake Garda – this is one beautiful region. Speri is one of the very best producers of Valpolicella.
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 large oak barrels and a few weeks’ bottle age, the intense, ample bouquet recalls vinous and almond notes, the palate is red fruited with a touch of bitterness. Structured and silky-textured, with layered flavours and aromas, and great food versatility all around. A joy for everyday drinking.
