2014 Buglioni Valpolicella Classico Superiore

SKU #1358522

The Buglioni family purchased their property in Valpolicella in 1993, and for years after worked tirelessly in the vineyards while completing renovation of the cellars and farmhouse. Upon completion in 2000, they hired enologist Diego Bertoni and earnestly dedicated themselves to wine production. The Classico is a blend of 60% Corvina, 25% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella, and 5% Croatina. It is the epitome of heart-warming wine for the Italian dinner table. It is fresh, traditional, and pure, and is perfectly ready to be enjoyed now. Bright red with brilliant notes of cherry and brambleberry, it is fresh and dry, but not for lack of generous and charming fruit.

This is abundantly flavored with black cherry, ripe red berry fruits and baking spice while remaining pleasantly laid back and balanced. Try this as an alternative to lighter styles such as a cru Beaujolais - this wine has more structure and tannic grip but is as versatile with many foods.

It’s traditional in this area to use some Slavonian oak casks for aging, and that’s what they did here. That oak adds a pungent sweet spice but doesn’t overwhelm the wine, which is so vibrant and charming on its own that the end result is stunning. The nose is loaded with black cherry, plum and baking spice. On the palate a sweet berry fruit emerges, contrasted beautifully with light tannin and soft velvety texture. The finish is dry and laden with perfumed clove and nutmeg notes. I would highly recommend pairing this with roasted beef or lamb. It could also be paired with red sauce dishes, which are somewhat difficult due to the natural acidity of tomato.

Italy

- 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.
