The Wine:

Aromas of dried cherry and dark plums are followed by hints of mocha and dark chocolate on the nose. A powerful, full-bodied palate opens with a spiced fruit character and supportive tannins. Raisin and candied peel notes come from the ‘ripasso’ method and are layered with rounded, ripe cherry flavours. The finish is long with added spicy nutmeg notes.

Further Info:

Run by Luca Degani since 1995, the Cantina Valpantena is now one of Italy’s best cooperative wineries, with 700 hectares of vineyard producing excellent quality fruit. Matt Thomson of Blank Canvas, who also makes some of the Alpha Zeta wines here, has worked closely with Luca at Cantina Valpantena since 1999.

Known as the ‘valley of god’ to the ancient Greeks, the Valpantena is well known for its quality red wines, due partly to the limestone soils, but also because of the cool breeze that blows down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites.

Torre del Falasco

The Torre del Falasco wines are the standard bearers of this cooperative. The Garganega displays floral and citrus aromas with a rich mineral palate and lifted lemon zest on the finish. Their Valpolicella illustrates why the Valpantena Valley has always been regarded to match the quality of the Classico zone. The Ripasso is a fuller, riper style than Alpha Zeta, as is their Amarone. The `Tesauro` Recioto della Valpolicella is elegant and well-structured displaying delicate aromas of blackberry jam and spicy hints.
