VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO SUPERIORE DOC
San Giuseppe Valpolicella Classico is the best of the familiar red wines that takes its name from Verona, the enchanted city of Romeo and Juliet. This hilly classico region is recognized for having some of the best vineyards in Italy. A youthful light red wine worthy of world-class status, Valpolicella Classico is an excellent companion to all types of pasta and meats.
It takes a special fusion of four sun-ripened grape varietals to give this wine its character. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara are carefully combined using just the right percentage of juice from each grape to create the ideal blend. This artistry and precision join to create a wine of enchantment and complexity.
The magic of this wine begins when the grapes are harvested between the end of September and mid-October. Fermentation occurs at controlled temperatures, followed by a 12-day steeping process during which the grapes are automatically mixed 3 times a day for 20 minutes. The wine is matured in stainless-steel vats before being placed in bottles. The result is a well-balanced, fruity and flavorful red wine.
This wine is as lovely to look at as it is to drink. Its rich ruby garnet color, followed by a dynamic aroma that mixes herbs and ripe fresh fruits, creates an enticing combination of rich flavors. Add to this a ripe tannic texture and a nuance of vanilla, and San Giuseppe Valpolicella Classico Superiore is indeed a classic for the ages.
