Valpolicella Classico is the DOCG classification of wines produced within this specific vineyard zone in the Veneto, Italy. The name refers to both this superior status as well as defining the “classic” Valpolicella zone, which was its original boundary before it was re-zoned in 1968. The surrounding towns are Fumane, Marano and Negrar. 
 
The wines produced here are renown for their higher quality. They’re cultivated in superior soil and vineyard conditions than the rest of the DOC, with more stringent rules in respect to yields and aging techniques. The blend is composed of primarily Corvina with smaller percentages of Molinara and Rondinella. Classico Superiore wines must be aged a minimum ABV of 11% and aged for a year prior to release. 
 
The Classico zone also encompasses the offshoots Recioto della Valpolicella, Amarone della Valpolicella and Valpolicella Ripasso.

  • Bolla Corvina Blend Valpolicella Classico Superiore le Poiane 1995

    Snoothrank:

    I drank a bottle of the 1995 in April 2015 and it was a tired and not very pleasant wine. After it was open for almost 3 hours it began to become more drinkable. Dont know if we should have given it 4 hours to breath but as i have another 11 to drink i guess i will be able to try. Eventually the wine became a not so great tasting plumy and raisi... Read More

  • Tedeschi Valpolicella Classico Superiore la Fabriseria 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Stemmy and spicy on the high toned and complex nose that shows some light medicinal shadings over fine floral accent notes with a leathery fruit base. Thick and a bit powerful for Valpolicella, this is built on a hard tannic base, and they are chewy tannins, though paired with fine acids that are covered by the rich fruit. With noticeable ste...

  • Tedeschi Lucchine Valpolicella Classico 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Gorgeously floral on the nose, with a lovely core of crushed blueberry, and wild berry almost black currant aromas. On the palate one finds big acid driven red fruit flavors supported by some nice fine tannins and a bit of minerality all leading to a nice cherry skin finish. Juicy, firm and brightly vivid in the mouth this is all about fresh an... Read More

  • Le Ragose Valpolicella Superiore Marta Galli 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky steminess on the nose lends this a Cabernet Franc like perfume laden with a little pyrazine note. Rich and velvety in the mouth, this is a mini Amarone with deep fruit thats a little pruny, more prunes in alcohol than dried fruit. This is quite front loaded on the palate, fairly tannic and with a rich vein of herbal extract and Vegemite fl... Read More

  • Le Ragose Valpolicella Superiore le Sassine 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy on the nose, which is a little leafy, with curranty fruit and some paprika accents. Big and rich with wild raspberry and cherry fruit carrying faint shadings of chocolate on the palate. This is, bitterish, deep but transparent on the palate with fresh tannins, lively acids, fine minerality on the backend good length to the dark cherry rhub... Read More
