The lovley bright Valpolicella has fresh prominent red berries & cherries  with soft herbs on the finish and just a touch of liquorice. Fun and fruity but with plenty to savour. Light but rewarding, a real cracker!

La Guiva ‘Il Valpol’ Valpolicella 2021

The estate was founded by Alberto Malesani, famous in Italy as a former manager of both Fiorentina and Parma. While at Parma, he won the UEFA cup in 1999.

His passion and intelligence is now channelled into this estate, where he is helped by consultant winemaker Lorenzo Caramazza, formerly of Cantina Valpantena. The name La Giuva is an acronym of his daughters’ initials, Giulia and Valentina, who are heavily involved in the business. The balance, concentration and aromatic intensity marks the wines out from the crowd in Valpolicella, and makes La Giuva one of the region’s rising stars.

Production is tiny, and won’t get that much higher than its current level of 18,000 bottles until the new vineyards come into production. Made with the freshest grapes from the vineyards, gathered in crates and left to dry for about fifteen days. Pressing and fermentation at low temperatures make up the youthful and genuine character.

Aging in stainless steel tanks for three months at a natural outside temperature, complete this wine. It certainly is wonderfully floral and perfumed and similar on the palate. Vibrant and juicy, so delicious it brings a smile to your face! Very, very drinkable, best served cool.
