This Villa Monteleone Valpolicella Classico, Campo Santa Lena, 2012, is made from hand-harvested Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina and Molinara grape varieties grown in vineyard sites with an ideal southerly exposure at an altitude of 220 meters. About 3000 cases are made each vintage in a fresh and fruity style, with temperature-controlled fermentation lasting about 12 days before the wine undergoes 6 months maturation in stainless steel and a further 6 months in bottle before release making it an ideal accompaniment to meat-sauce based pasta dishes, Mediterranean vegetables as well as fish with tomato sauces. This vintage won the Vinibuoni d'Italia Golden Star award.
Although an ideal wine for everyday drinking it is not out of place with more sophisticated dinner party food. Mark Savage (MW) says of this wine:
" If I sold wine by giving scores, how could I give it less than 20/20? It has the charm of the best Beaujolais, but with an immediate softness in contrast to the rather sharper cut of acidity given by gamay grapes growing on granite soils..."

We think that you will share his views of this simply delicious Italian red wine.
