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. Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Etichetta Rossa is the youngest Amarone wine, produced from a blend of Corvina and Corvinone grapes and a small percentage of Rondinella. Grapes come from the family's three crus at altitudes of between 200 and 400 metres. Only the best bunches of grapes are hand-picked for this wine. After a period of drying in larders, the grapes are softly pressed. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled steel vats with frequent pumping over. This Amarone della Valpolicella Etichetta Rossa spends 3 years ageing including 1 year in French oak tonneaux, 1 year in Slavonian oak barrels and 1 year in the bottle. Intense ruby red in colour with garnet reflections. Well-defined notes of macerated cherries, ripe blackberries, blackcurrants and black cherries on the nose, combined with dried fruits, cocoa, coffee and sweet spices. Generous, warm and enveloping in the mouth. Very full-bodied with very lively acidity. The tannin is soft and silky and the finish is long. A Veneto red to accompany Sunday lunch with friends and family. Pair with red meats, roasts, braised meats and game 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).
