There's nothing like Valpolicella Classico anywhere else in the world - it's definitely a wine you should try.
Speri was founded in 1874 and with members of both the 5th, 6th and 7th generations at the helm, it’s one of the oldest family-run estates in the Valpolicella region. All of Speri’s 60 ha of vineyards, spanning over five sites, are located within the Classico zone and all are certified organic.
The Speri Valpolicella Classico Superiore La Roverina 2020 is a wine blend of 70% corvina, 20% rondinella and a 10% mixture of molinara and other local varieties. The fruit is sourced from a single vineyard known as ‘La Roverina’ located in the heart of the Classico zone. Being labelled Superiore means that the fruit has been picked a little riper and the wine aged a little longer, than both standard Valpolicella and Vaplocaella Classico. Specifically, it has to have a minimum alcohol level of 12% and have been aged for at least a year in wood. These requirements tend to give a wine that’s darker in colour and with greater aroma, flavour, structure and complexity than standard Valpolicella.
Speri Valpolicella Classico Superiore La Roverina 2020 Tasting Notes
In the glass this is a clear garnet. On the nose you’ll find cherry, marzipan and aniseed notes. While on the palate there’s juicy pomegranate, graphite, pepper and a long liquorice finish. Medium bodied with crisp acidity and soft tannins, this opens up beautifully in the glass.
