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.

  • Tedeschi Recioto Della Valpolicella Classico Capitel Fontana 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Melting caramel and sweet tea nuance adds a fruit leather quality to the dried cherry and prune aromas that pick up a little smoke note with air. This is a drier style of recioto, still sweet but with lots of mineral underpinnings, and a good tannic base lending fine savory character to the midpalate. n the mouth one again finds sweet tea, alo...

  • Bertani Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Here we have a wine just hitting its stride and full of aromatic tea, dried soil, dried flowers, a bit of fungi, and an underlying sweetness to the emerging notes of dried meat, licorice and cooked fennel. While the nose gives the impression of something older, this is still fresh and tight on entry, with real focus, and very elegant with attrac... Read More

  • Tedeschi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2009

    Snoothrank:

    VA greets the nose along with rich aromas of dried strawberry, raspberry and cherry backed up with gentle soil tones, a little fig, and underlying violet and white pepper tones A touch of sweetness on entry is quickly washed away by huge, refreshing acids in the mouth. While moderately tannic, the acids lend great clarity and incredible vibran... Read More

  • Le Ragose Corvina Blend Amarone Della Valpolicella 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The gorgeous nose, shows off brilliant aromas of sweet herbs, complex middle eastern spice, dried herb stem, and rose stems. Elegant and wide open in the mouth, there are lovely red fruit flavors here, redolent of raspberry juice, then tobacco, bitter wild cherries, and a little cinnamon add engaging complexity. Fine ripe tannins keep this livel... Read More

  • Speri Amarone 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Deep, complex, and masculine, if a bit oaky at first, though air brings out huge mineral notes with elegant floral high tones layered over a core of black cherry fruit with a little prune accent. On entry this is muscular and sinewy, tightly packed with fine grained tannins and big cherry fruit followed by layered mineral and oak notes. This is ... Read More
