Andrea and Ivano Brunelli’s Valpolicella Classico Superiore manages to take you on a timeless journey into Veronese tradition, thanks to its aromas and flavor.
The red grapes for this wine are hand-picked from predominantly limestone soils after being left to ripen for a longer time on the vine. After cold maceration, a special hot maceration is applied that lasts for 1 month and serves to extract all the aromas and flavors of Oseleta, a prized grape native to Valpolicella. Aging involves at least 12 months between oak barrels and steel, plus another 12 months in the bottle.
The color is an intense ruby red with purple hues.
Spices and ripe red fruit, such as plums, blackberries and currants, prevail on the nose.
Soft and persuasive red fruits re-emerge on the palate; delicate tannins ensure good persistence on the palate.
In the kitchen, being structured and full-bodied, it excellently supports red meats cooked on the grill, game with a pronounced flavor and well-aged cheeses, whose aromas and flavors it enhances. A wine that will make you fall definitively in love with Valpolicella.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it gives to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
