If you enjoy the food friendly reds of northern Italy, especially the Valpolicella Ripasso style, you will love this. We have worked with Italian Winery of the Year Cantina di Negrar for years. They own a vineyard in the Marano Valley and they’ve offered us a deal on their Rosso Veronese – a wine usually reserved for their Italian fans.
It’s named after Bartolomeo Lorenzi, whose epic 18th century poem of rural life made Valpolicella wines famous the world over. The Marano Valley is especially cool, so grapes have a longer ripening time that adds depth, character and a freshness to the wines. Also included is a dash of dark Amarone. With black cherry fruit and Christmas cake spice, it’s hard to imagine a more appealing Rosso Veronese.
