Le Ragose is located in the town of Negrar on the historic hills of Valpolicella. After years of lying abandoned, the 70 acre estate was in 1969 by Arnaldo Galli, an enologist, and his wife Marta Bortoletto. Together with their children, Paolo and Marco, they have striven to respect the traditions of this ancient zone while carefully introducing modern technology both in the vineyard and in the cellars. They have been slowly increasing the types of varietals they plant with the precise scope of improving the sector of the "classic" wines and, at the same time, satisfying the evolving and changing tastes of the consumer … Today there are 40 acres of vineyard which lie above the notorious winter fogs. The terrain is particularly suited for vine growing and the climate is idea for the "appassimento" (drying) of the grapes. The Galli family is involved in all phases of the production from the vineyard to the marketing of the finished wines. Their wines, which have drawn much attention in the press, are produced Read more »

  • It’s not what you think it is, and I’m not sure what the producers ... appreciate the style. 88pts Le Ragose 2012 Le Ragose Valpolicella $NA A bit oily, with dark stemmy aromas on the nose and lots of dried floral and almost autumnal spice notes.

  • 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 Ripasso 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Dark cherry fruit greets the nose along with layers of spicy, earthy, slightly oaky, and decidedly medicinal herbal aromas that have a slight beet root edge to them. Bright acids on entry promise a fresh wie though this immediately reveals a bit of a meaty palate rich with dark cherry fruit, rose petals, and then masses of minerally, roasted me... Read More

  • Le Ragose Valpolicella Italy 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit oily, with dark stemmy aromas on the nose and lots of dried floral and almost autumnal spice notes. Almost sweet on entry, then broad in the mouth with assertive saline minerality to the clear and bright palate which gains firmness from a base of fine grained tannins. Elegant in the mouth, this has some weight up front but finishes with a... Read More

  • Le Ragose Recioto Della Valpolicella 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Herbal and earthy on the nose with spicy, peppery accents over the medicinal black cherry base notes that shows a slightly roasted edge. Supple and smooth in entry, this counters early mineral notes with a late arriving chewy chocolate laced finish. Between the two floats a mass of black cherry fruit, macerated herbs, and some light nutty and qu... Read More
