This powerful wine from the iron rich, chalky marl soils of Valpantena, Valpolicella's only Cru, in the foothills of the mountains north of Verona. This traditional blend of air dried grapes, 80% Corvina, 20% Rondinella , is truly hedonistic! Luscious scents of Cherry preserve, vanilla and liquorice leap from the glass. This deep ruby red wine is smooth and warming in the mouth. A balanced and harmonious suite of tannins make this perfect with game or aged cheeses. The family firm of Tezza was founded in 1960 and is now run by three cousins Flavio, Federico and Vanio. Their vineyards will be designated organic from the 2018 vintage.
