Outer quote mark Macerated black cherries bathed in a mixture of cloves, cinnamon, thyme and pepper waft out of the glass, inviting you to delve deeper. The silky-smooth palate is full of plums and cherries, cocoa powder and freshly ground coffee. The wine is balanced with fine tannins and enough acidity to keep the palate fresh for the next glass.

The 2019 Valpolicella Classico Superiore is dusty and darkly floral, with hints of mocha giving way to dried cherries and blueberries. This is a juicy and lifted expression, full of energy and perfumed, with tart red berries that cascade across a core of salty minerality. It tapers of remarkably pretty and perfumed with violet flowers and a touch of autumnal spice.
