We are always on the prowl for wines that over-deliver, wines that taste far greater than their price might suggest. This month, in college hoops parlance, we have quite the dunk! This Valpolicella is loaded with new world fruits and freshness while kept grounded by classic old world structure and style. It blew us away with its quality and easily crossed the line first to be our Wine of the Month 2. Along with the bright, forward flavors and excellent acidity and tannins of structure, this wine is versatile-- whether the weather or menu changes unexpectedly or frequently, this wine will bring its 'A Game' regardless. Buy a few extra for when it starts to warm up and serve with a light chill. Molto bene!

The Morini family has been making wine for over 40 years. The family is fully involved and engaged in the production of wines such as Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone. There are so many family members working at the winery that they barely fit in the group picture. Their Production started at the local Cantine Sociale selling grapes and not bottling anything under the Ilatium label. Finally, in 1992, the family purchased a historic farmhouse from the early 1900s surrounded by beautiful vineyards in the heart of Val di Mezzane east of Verona. The Vineyards, located in three neighboring geographic areas, but with completely different microclimates and soils, provide the ability to obtain grapes with different characteristics and different maturation periods, this also helps with logistics during the frantic times of harvest! That they love what they do is evident in the bottle. We were captivated and believe you will be, too!

Brilliant and bright in the glass, its translucent ruby color beamed freshness in the morning light when we tasted. Quiet intensity and complexity meld with bright zippy fruits in the nose; raspberry, cherry and cranberry. The palate rounds out with additional layers of cedar and garrique while keeping its mélange of red pulp fruits in the forefront. Notes of mixed herbals and hillside brush play in the background alongside brown spices. Dry, warm and quite soft in the mouth, a good dose of tannins adds to the classic structure of the wine. This is a great spring-into-summer red wine. Serve it lightly chilled or at room temp and win either way. Pair with Lamb tacos, pork dishes, cheeses, risotto with sausage, fresh gnocchi, ham too!

Additional Info

Country: Italy

Italy is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world, and Italian wines are known worldwide for their broad variety. Italy, closely followed by France, is the world’s largest wine producer by volume. Its contribution is about 45–50 million hl per year, and represents about ⅓ of global production. Italian wine is exported around the world and is also extremely popular in Italy. Grapes are grown in almost every region of the country and there are more than one million vineyards under cultivation. Italy's twenty wine regions correspond to the twenty administrative regions. The 73 DOCG wines are located in 15 different regions but most of them are concentrated in Piedmont, Veneto and Tuscany. Among these are appellations appreciated and sought after by wine lovers around the world: Barolo, Barbaresco, and Brunello di Montalcino (colloquially known as the "Killer B's"). Other notable wines that in the latest years gain much attention in the international markets and among specialists are: Amarone della Valpolicella, Prosecco di Conegliano- Valdobbiadene, Taurasi from Campania, Franciacorta sparkling wines from Lombardy, Chianti and Soave, while new wines from the Centre and South of Italy are quickly gaining recognition: Sagrantino, Primitivo, Nero D'Avola among others. The Friuli-Venezia Giulia is world famous for the quality white wines, like Pinot Grigio.
