This is packed tight with a concentrated, silky bead of ripe red berries and red cherries that drives through the palate, until fine, quite firm tannins block its path right at the end. Medium-bodied, but the concentration of fruit makes it feel heavier. Lots of energy here, but balance, too. Delicious now. Even better after another year in bottle. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
The Speri family is one of the historical families of Valpolicella with roots that go all the way back to the 1800s. Respecting their territorial heritage, three different generations now work side by side, exclusively cultivating grape varieties native to the Valpolicella region. A true benchmark in Italian winemaking, Speri is widely respected as an authoritative and faithful interpreter of Valpolicella Classica wines and in 2015, after years of practising sustainable farming, the winery officially achieved organic certification.
