  1. La Dama Vini Valpolicella Classico 2020
    La Dama Vini Valpolicella Classico 2020
    Established by Gabriele and Miriam Dalcanele in 2006, La Dama represents the new breed of winemakers in the region. Modern, fresh yet compelling wines coaxed from organically farmed vineyards in the fabled commune of Negrar, home to some of the great names including the legendary Giuseppe Quintarelli.

    Their 10 hectare estate has been certified organic since 2015 and works only with the native varieties of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara. Oak influence is kept to a minimum in order to ensure the vineyard speaks for itself in the glass.

    This looks so pretty in the glass with red currant, raspberry, a touch of Sichuan spice with a lovely lifted and fragrant and nose. There is a touch more flesh and richness then the 2019's and some very fine tannins that give this a little more edge to the wild red fruits. A touch of wild herbs at the end also hang out in the background of the nose and give this a little extra bit of complexity. Really nice form on this one.

  2. La Dama Vini Valpoilicella Classico Ripasso Superiore 2017
    La Dama Vini Valpoilicella Classico Ripasso Superiore 2017
    Established by Gabriele and Miriam Dalcanele in 2006, La Dama represents the new breed of winemakers in the region. Modern, fresh yet compelling wines coaxed from organically farmed vineyards in the fabled commune of Negrar, home to some of the great names including the legendary Giuseppe Quintarelli.

    Working only with the native varieties of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara, the 10 hectares of vineyards are all hand-picked with oak influence kept to a minimum in order to ensure the vineyard speaks for itself in the glass.

    This is light on its feet compared to some other Superiore style wines of the regions and is so much better for it. Pure, bright with a lovely sparkle to the concentrated black and red fruits and that gentle lifted spice that is so appealing. There is still a lovely richness to the palate that come from the Ripasso treatment and it adds a lovely bit of depth and plushness that is so pleasing. PWS

  3. Tedeschi Recioto Monte Fontana 2011 Recioto 500ml
    Tedeschi Recioto Monte Fontana 2011 Recioto 500ml

    This sweet and rich dessert wine is produced with select grapes in only the best vintages, from the Monte Fontana vines of Pedemonte. Recioto is a historic Valpolicella wine, known through history under different names since Roman times.

    After hand-harvesting and strict selection, the grapes are dried in a controlled environment for 4 months. The wine is obtained via natural arrest of fermentation and left to mature for 2 years in Slavonian oak casks, then aged in bottle for an additional 6 months.
