"Montegradella" Valpolicella DOC Classico Sup. 2017 - Santa Sofia

Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore, Montegradella is one of the good red wines of the area offered by Santa Sofia. The grapes, Corvina and Corvinone for 70% and Rondinella for the remaining 30, come from the classic zone of Valpolicella, from hillside vineyards located in the municipalities of Fumane and Marano. After processing, the wine rests for about a year in wooden barrels. Of these, about 40% are 500-litre tonneaux made from French oak, while the remaining 60% are large 20 and 30-hectolitre barrels made from Slavonian oak. At the end of this long maturation phase, the wine is bottled and left to rest in the bottle for a further 12 months before being released for sale. A wine characterised by a beautiful longevity, this Montegradella in the glass has a beautiful bright ruby colour with garnet highlights. The nose immediately reveals a decisive, broad, harmonious and refined bouquet, reminiscent of prunes and cherries in alcohol. But also aromatic berries, such as cloves and the more spicy notes of vanilla. In the mouth, then, an austere wine is revealed, well supported by a silky tannic texture that caresses the palate. Perfectly balanced between freshness and alcoholic warmth, this Valpolicella guarantees a long and subtly bitter finish. This is the bottle to look for in the cellar when the menu includes richly flavoured dishes such as braised and stewed meats. Also excellent with medium (and long) aged cheeses.

It is located in a beautiful site, that is, on a hill that rises very easily, which covers part of the city and is between two small valleys: all the surrounding hills are very pleasant and full of good water. It is with these words that Andrea Palladio described the places where the Santa Sofia winery is located today. We are in Valpolicella, the land of wine. The cellars are located below and to the side of Villa Santa Sofia, formerly known as Villa Serego. Begun in 1560 to a design by Andrea Palladio, the villa was built on commission by Marcantonio Serego, a highly respected nobleman who was married to Ginevra Alighieri. A historic winery in the territory (in the true sense of the term), Santa Sofia is now owned by Giancarlo Begnoni. Approximately 40 hectares of vineyards produce wines with a classic and traditional style. After all, in a place like this, it would be impossible not to.
