The Oddbins Take

When we tell you that Valpolicella is made using dried-up grapes left for ages in a box, it doesn't sound very nice, does it? But hear us out. When they are left to dry in this temperature- and humidity-controlled environment, they acquire a delicious raisin-y quality. It’s rich and concentrated like Amarone, but Valpolicella has more elegance and finesse. With Valpolicella it’s all about balancing the red berry, spice and sweetness and this one is something of a diplomat, and strikes that balance perfectly.

Val d’Illasi, near Verona, in the Adige region, is a gently sloping, rich and generous land and country-loving winemaker Giancarlo Ruffo originally just got a place there so he could get away from the city witgh his family for the weekends, but later decided to plant up some vines – the first time he’d ever done so. His inspiration was passion for nature and its products, his taste for good wine produced in this region and so, little by little, Tenuta Chiccheri was established. His first vintage was in 2001 and in just a few years, wines from Tenuta Chiccheri have built up a strong reputation.
