About the wine estate

Valpolicella Superiore Galante

Description
This Valpolicella Superior wine has an intense ruby red colour. The nose proffers intense aromas of graphite, followed by chocolate, prune, chlorophyll, black pepper, licorice, morello cherry and plum. On the palate the body is medium, immediately yielding morello cherry and ripe plum. A well-balanced wine with an acidity that, thanks to the tannins, effectively subdues the alcohol. Long and aromatic finale.
