TASTING NOTES

Villa Spinosa is one of Valpolicella’s most historic wine cellars, located in Negrar in Valpolicella at 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 works on 20 hectares divided into three grand crus: Jago, Figari and Costa del Buso. Each cru encloses and embodies 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 consistently produced some of the most interesting wines of Valpolicella, and its Amarone can reach twenty years of ageing. Recioto di Villa Spinosa is dedicated to Francesca Finato Spinosa, the grandmother of Enrico Cascella Spinosa, the current owner. As is written on the label, Francesca believed that a good Recioto combines sweetness with depth of character. This sweet wine is produced from a blend of Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, and Rondinella grapes. After drying and fermentation in stainless steel, the wine undergoes ageing for 12 months in casks, 24 months in Slavonian barrels, and 12 months in the bottle. To the eye, it is a vibrant purplish red. On the nose, it has notes of blackberry, black cherry, and blueberry jam combined with dry figs and caramelised sugar. In the mouth, it is extremely soft and seductive. Its sweetness is balanced well by the acidity that gives it freshness and drinkability. This sweet Veneto wine is perfect for sipping at the end of a meal with sweets and desserts. 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).
