Production of Italian Valpolicella began in the mid 12th Century and features a blend of three grapes from the Veneto region: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. Valpolicella makes a fantastic medium bodied wine. It is rich, but not too heavy. It has notes of cherry, dark fruit, and a bit of plum. We often call it the 'gateway' red because it is so easy drinking than even those who like white wine only will enjoy this one. It can be made with oak, though we prefer it without.
Our 2018 Valpolicella is lower in acidity compared to most years. We recommend adding 1.5 grams per litre of our acid blend to the juice at fermentation.
2018 Harvest Brix° 22.5
Potential Alcohol: 13.3%

Production of Italian Valpolicella began in the mid 12th Century and features a blend of three grapes from the Veneto region: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. The late budding vine typically sees an early harvesting period and produces a juice with a stronger acidity and a thinner profile.
Our juices are packaged in a food grade 11.2L (2.9 U.S.gallon) plastic canister that are hermetically sealed. After we harvest, crush and press the grapes, we then Flash Pasteurize the juice and hot fill them, to ensure, a clean, bacteria and yeast free environment.
Each canister weighs approximately 12.8kg (28.2lbs) and comes with one 5g package of our preferred Yeast. Our shelf stable juices will last up to 18 months in their original packaging.
