in News 13 Dec 2016

The 2017 “BIBENDA” guide, which represents its 19th edition, has recently been released. More than ever this guide presents itself as a long voyage across all of Italy’s regions in search of innovations in food and wine and the men and women that make them possible.

We invite you to have a look at the wine scores and reviews and note two special comments: the surprising clean note and expression of the Valpolicella Superiore Maternigo 2013, and the serene grace, perfect balance, lightness yet concentrated extracts of the multi-award winning Amarone della Valpolicella La Fabriseria 2011.

Very pigmented ruby red. On a thick layer of spice and rust there are hints of cherry under syrup, infused forest flowers, juniper berries, leather, toasted oak and an oriental aura of Lebanese cedar and patchouli incense. There is great concentration, balance, harmony and persistence.
