Crossing over Via Ungheria you breathe an atmosphere of times past, with a main office that seems to haven’t changed for over a century, recalling an agricultural bourgeoisie that brought so much to Valpolicella. With the arrival of Christian Ridolfi at the helm, the winery went through a period of major redevelopment and a boost in quality, highlighted both by their Soaves and Valpolicellas, followed. It’s a range dedicated mainly to Verona’s wines, interpreted here with a style that brings out the qualities of harmony and depth. 2015, an excellent year, made for an Amarone Proemio redolent of ripe cherries and spices, which gradually give way to warmer and more mature aromas. In the mouth, however, its ripeness is made compact by dense tannins and a nice supporting acidity, making for an almost austere profile. We also appreciated the Ventale ’19, a Valpolicella characterized by a full, supple palate that expresses both aromatic integrity and maturity.
