The Full Spectrum of Valpolicella
With 39ha of vineyards, including 15ha of the oldest and most prestigious land in the region, the Nicolis family is well placed to produce excellent wines.
The wines run the whole range of the Valpolicella spectrum, from the anything but basic Classico and Classico Superiore, which establish a house style of vibrant, bright cherry fruit and ripe, elegant tannins, up to the epic dry Amarone and sweet Recioto.
These latter two are made from grapes that are dried out almost to raisins in aerated lofts, concentrating the intensity of flavour.
The Italian phrase 'vino da meditazione' is very apt indeed.
In between these two extremes, is the Seccal Ripasso which combines the juiciness of the Valpolicella with some of the Amarone's spice and power.
