Valpolicella Classico DOC 2016
The Valpolicella is the most simple and genuine wine of our area, coming form the direct pressing of fresh grapes. The vine varieties used are the typical ones: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara. This wine was traditionally part of the daily nutrition: for this reason, Valpolicella should have been a fresh and light wine even in old times.
In Gnirega we chose to produce a Valpolicella which reflects this tradition: we chose to exalt the natural features deriving from our grapes and soils.
This Valpolicella is the result of a warm and dry vintage, similar to the vintage 2015 and 2017. The harvest began at the end of Septeber because of the vegetative stop occurred to vines in the midth of summer, caused by drought.
On the palate it is possible to feel hints of ripe fruit together with a nice acidity which make a light and drinkable wine. The alcohol content confirms the vintage trend, maintaining nevertheless a good balance.
