'Ethereal rustic, meaty aromas are accompanied by dark fruits and black olive notes which shine through, This is very intense on the palate, with plenty of cherry and ripe plum flavours evolving into sweeter cherry jam on the finish.'
Decanter Tasting Panel

  • Valpolicella, or locally known as 'the valley of many grapes', is one of the Veneto's most famous wine appelations. It is the home to Amarone, and the home to some of the most striking and decadent wines produced anywhere in Italy. For anyone, who has ever had the chance to visit this corner of the world (Venice anyone???) then you will have no doubt been served a similiar delicious Valpolicella Superiore to today's wine. They are synonymous with the a tavola's and trattoriare of the region, and showcase a beautiful array of blueberry, cherries, liquorice and eucalypt. The Castelforte is an absolute bargain, and a chief reminder as to how good the Italians are at producing everyday, flavourful reds with personality and punch.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    After a careful selection of grapes with high sugar content, vinification takes place with 'Ganimede' system where the grape skins and wine are continuously mixed in order to extract colour and tannins. The resulting wine is aged partly in  stainless steel and partly in wood casks for 12 months.

    A blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella + Others

    TASTING NOTES

    Brilliant ruby red in colour, the youthful bouquet is of red cherries and raspberries. Light in body with high  acidity, ripe cherry fruit on the palate. An elegant wine with an excellent body that shows intense scents of blueberry and cherry, liquorice and pleasant balsamic notes of eucalyptus.
