2014 Venturini Valpolicella Classico Superiore "Semonte Alto" Ripasso

SKU #1347921

The three-generation family estate of Azienda Agricola Venturini Massimino works 12 hectares of their own vineyard lands in the gorgeous region of Valpolicella Classica. The rolling hills of Valpolicella are some 812 feet above sea level, and the climate is singularly suited to produce some of the world's most decadent and stunning red wines using the unique 'Ripasso' technique. The vineyard of 'Semonte Alto' produces this style of full-bodied, concentrated, plush red that is intensely aromatic and boldly expressive. The 2014 vintage was challenging, and restricted the producers to using only the highest quality grapes; overall the vintage is marked by a lively acidity that harmonizes well with the natural depth of fruit. A gorgeous and energetic Valpolicella Ripasso!

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
