External Reviews for Monte del Frà Valpolicella Classico DOC
Monte del Frà translates as Hill of Monks and is located in the heart of the Bianco di Custoza DOC. It now consists of over 65 hectares of vineyards owned and run by brothers Eligio and Claudio Bonomo. It is one of the most progressive and dynamic producers in the region and has been particularly innovative in its adoption of modern viticultural techniques. Eligio Bonomo was the first producer in the region to retrain the traditionally 1.6m high cordon vines to lower-trained, single guyot systems. In the winery the Bonomos use thoroughly modern, temperature-controlled fermentation and storage facilities in order to preserve the aromatic freshness in their wines. The wine itself has a brilliant ruby red colour and a nose which reminds one of morello and cherry flowers with a pleasing savoury and balanced taste. This wine goes well with white meat or red boiled meat and is ideal for complete, light meals. To be served at cellar temperature.
