TASTING NOTES

Villa Spinosa is one of Valpolicella's most historic wine cellars, located in Negrar in Valpolicella in the heart of the region. The company traces its roots back to the 1700s, but it was at the beginning of the 1900s that it began to produce prestigious wines, following the recovery of vineyards and the renovation of cottages. The wines of Villa Spinosa are the result of intense and constant work in the vineyard and from carefully studying and selecting the vineyards to use. The staff work on 20 hectares divided into three grand crus: Jago, Figari and Costa del Buso. Each cru encapsulates and expresses a unique micro-terroir. In the wine cellar, operations are carried out with care and know-how that have developed over the course of more than a hundred years. Villa Spinosa has always and consistently produced some of the most interesting wines of Valpolicella and its Amarone can reach 20 years of ageing. Albasini’s Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a blend of Corvina and Corvinone with a small percentage of Rondinella. It is the wine that best represents the winery and the family’s passion, dedicated to the Albasini ancestors who built the house at cru Figari all those years ago. The grapes are hand-picked and left to dry in larders for about 3-4 months. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel with frequent pumping over and ageing, first in tonneaux for 12 months and then 4 months in Slavonian barrels over a period of 4 years. Before being released, the wine rests for 12 months in the bottle. Garnet red in colour. Intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry and macerated cherries on the nose. Notes of sweet spices including liquorice and cinnamon. Sprinkled with black pepper, cocoa powder and powerful notes of tobacco and cedarwood. On the palate it is velvety yet full-bodied. The acidity balances well with the sweeter notes, and the finish is very persistent. A red Veneto with good depth to enjoy with family and friends over Sunday lunch with substantial and flavourful meat dishes. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Villa Spinosa

In the heart of the Valpolicella Classica, the land of Amarone, lies the Cantina Villa Spinosa, a winery that has sought to express the value of the surrounding territory in its wines over the years. The rustici di Jago, which are located alongside the core of the farm, probably dating from around the 18th century, represent the rural tradition of Valpolicella, built using authentic tufa stone. The surrounding area, ideal for viticulture thanks to its climate, exposure and soil composition, play a fundamental role in making Amarone, as well as the other precious red wines from Veneto, a wine renowned for its quality throughout the world. Villa Spinosa offers a panoramic view of the vineyards and picturesque landscape of Valpolicella, recalling the Veneto tradition in its architecture. With the aim of preserving and safeguarding the heritage of the Veneto region, Villa Spinosa takes care of the vineyards, implementing traditional and typical techniques to convey the uniqueness and love for the surrounding area. Name and address of producer/distributor: Villa Spinosa - Via Jago dall'Ora, 14, 37024 Negrar di Valpolicella (VR). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
