Roccolo Grassi's Valpolicella is a total stunner. A blend of at least 50% Amarone with 50% fresh Valpolicella creates a ridiculous level of complexity and intensity, while maintaining its balance and limiting residual sugar. This is one of the highest quality examples of great Valpolicella in a category that can be quite varied.

The 2015 Valpolicella Superiore is an intense and spicy effort that keeps the energy high from start to finish. Rosy florals, tart cherries and blackberries are contrasted by zesty citrus and hints of undergrowth. It’s velvety and creamy in feel yet lifted by bright acids, as a wave of polished dark fruits gives way to notes of bitter baker’s chocolate and savory herbs. There are so many layers here, as the 2015 keeps you guessing at what will come next and finishes lightly structured and long. Here, Roccolo Grassi uses 50% partially dried grapes to find a happy middle ground between Amarone and Valpolicella. It’s a fantastic wine that can excel on its own or at the dinner table.
