About the Region:

Valpolicella Classico, Veneto, Italy
Valpolicella Classico is synonymous with some of the finest wines of the broader Valpolicella area. Located in northeastern Italy, this traditional viticultural zone benefits from superior drainage, sunnier aspects, and tighter production restrictions, resulting in riper and healthier grapes. The region is renowned for its terroir, particularly around the villages of Fumane, Marano, and Negrar, where the hills rise into the fresh sub-alpine air, creating ideal conditions for grape cultivation. The primary grape varieties used include Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella, each contributing to the complex tannic and phenolic profiles of Valpolicella Classico wines.
