Valpolicella Superiore DOC
Richly aromatic, this elegant, full-bodied version offers accents of fennel seed and espresso, showing a pleasant, stemmy herbal quality to the flavors of baked black cherry, fig cake and black tea leaf. Plush tannins firm the lasting finish. Drink now through 2029. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
"A very rich and spicy nose of kirsch, sweet morello cherries, spice box, hazlenuts and vanilla beans with dried dark cherry cake and lots of cedar, too. Full body, sweet fruit, vibrant acidity, ripe and round tannins and a fruit-forward finish..."
