The fruit of artisans; born in Italy from accidentally mixing with Amarone della Valpolicella leftovers. Resultant intensity & residual sweetness creates a New / Old World hybrid, capable of bottle development. Old world structure, New world fruit.

Zonin Valpolicella Classico DOC: Wine Man Pick: New Improved

November 3, 2011
Zonin Valpolicella classico DOC

Good news: since March 2014 this ‘Classico’ version replaced a previously uninspiring ‘collection’ entity. Upgraded for the same price. That’s what we like. unfortunately the picture isn’t yet upgraded. Grrr! Brilliant, rich ruby-red colour. Gently vinous bouquet, with characteristic hints of raspberries & willow bark. The dry flavour, has a delicate, soft but well-structured fruit, & an elegant, harmonious balance. Recommended with savoury soups, pasta with tomato/meat sauces, roasts and moderately aged cheeses.

Price: ¥118
