Timeless and authentic
The Montegradella Valpolicella Classico Superiore was produced for the first time with the vintage 1974, in a moment of great success for Italian and winemaking’s stage. Those were the years in which great brands were born in Tuscany and Piemonte, and Valpolicella was asked to respond with a wine that could compare with the others, able to refine in the bottle and not only in the barrels. Therefore a new concept of Valpolicella arose, very similar to Amarone, as ambitious but more easy-drinking and versatile in pairings. The appassimento is limited to 30 days and the ageing is shorter: 18 months in barrels and tonneaux.
At least, we can say that Montegradella’s vineyard has all the best qualities to produce appassimento’s wines, longlasting wines, meant to age for a long time, immortal and authentic.
