Ca' La Bionda Valpolicella Classico 2021

Veneto, ItalyCa’ La Bionda is nestled in the common of Marano di Valpolicella, in the heart of the historically classic zone of Valpolicella. The winery was founded in 1902 by Pietro Castellani, and their organically certified 29 hectares of vineyards is currently overseen by the fourth generation. This blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, and 10% Rondinella and Molinara is planted in very rocky clay limestone at 150-300m. It was fermented and aged in stainless. Dusty rocks, crushed cherry, is lit with a tart red currant acidity and licked with red liquorice on a bright, limestone laced palate. Tannins are fine and taut, keeping this energetic through the finish. Lovely freshness throughout.Tasted: 26 January 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
