Winery Notes:
Tasting Notes:
Bright ruby. Vibrant aromas of redcurrant, blackberry and candied viole on the knockout nose. Quite juicy on the palate, with floral red berry flavors given laser-like precision by lovely harmonious acidity. Very well balanced wine, clean and clear.

Tasting Notes:
The 2007 Valpolicella from Brigaldara is incredibly sexy juice. Medium to full in body, this voluptuous Valpolicella offers tons of dark fruit intermingled with scents of bittersweet chocolate, leather and spices in an utterly captivating glass of wine. I can’t think of too many wines that deliver this much sheer pleasure for the tariff.

Valpolicella derives from the vinification of fresh grapes, mainly Corvina and Corvinone. The harvesting period is very mportant for this wine, due to the delicacy of its aromas and to the fragile sensory balance in which acidity plays a fundamental role. Our Valpolicella is a very drinkable wine that expresses the traditional aromas of the valley, which range from cherry to more or less pronounced spicy notes, depending on the vintage. The perfect olfactory balance is achieved with a short refinement in steel that emphasizes the sensorial particularities of the wine.
