Valpolicella is one of Italy’s best known reds, loved for its vibrant red fruit. Here it’s combined with the Ripasso method, so has dense cherry and chocolatey fruit. A star wine crafted by Daniele Accordini at ‘Venetian Winery of the Year 2010’.
"Thoroughly enjoyed this. Smooth, complex, and lovely finish. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2015 vintage
Halfway between the powerful Amarone style and classic Valpolicella, this dark, cherryish red is from Cantina Negrar, an award winning cellar, not far from Verona. Star winemaker and trained oenologist Daniele Accordini works closely with small local growers, encouraging the highest standards in the vineyard as well as respect for the natural environment and biodiversity. For this red he has ensured plenty of richness, weight and complexity by fermenting the wine with a portion of partially dried grapes – the famous ‘Ripasso’ technique of Amarone. From a top vintage, the wine has rich cherry flavours, chocolatey notes and an attractive ‘bite’. Poggio al Lago pairs beautifully with pasta with a rich tomato sauce or a spicy pork casserole.
