Vivino's Regional Styles

Italian Valpolicella Red

The red wines of Valpolicella have a lot to offer for anyone who is a fan of rich, fruit-filled wines. The baked cherry, plum flavors and the rich texture are similar to really good Zinfandels from California.

The famous wines from Amarone and even the great value Valpolicella Ripasso are decadent, yet restrained.

In Northeast Italy, the region of Valpolicella grows a little-known grape called Corvina. It can make wines that are light with sour cherry flavors like Beaujolais, but the best known styles are much richer.

In Amarone, the grapes are dried before pressing giving the wine higher alcohol and body. The dark dessert-like fruit is complemented with strong acidity and just a touch of bitterness that makes this wine very sensual and often expensive.

The “Baby Amarone” wines of Valpolicella Ripasso are a much more affordable way to try this bold, seductive style similar to the best of California's Zinfandel.
