In the past few years we've tasted a lot of examples of Valpolicella - the basic red wine of the region - and they are all over the place, ranging in style from very austere to lush, factory-induced fruit-gobs. It becomes hard to know what the standard is. It does seem that this type of wine should be fresh, medium-bodied, and it should carry hints of the aromatic and palate richness that the same grapes give to the noble Amarone. This version delivers. It's a natural wine - biodynamic farming, indigenous yeasts, minimal sulphur, etc. Aged in botte - huge wood barrels, not filtered, this has great purity, and that hard-sought-after typicity. A very fine wine. True Valpolicella is a bright, refreshing treat built to wash down rich foods such as Polenta and Risotto. I think that this will translate fantastically to the hearty Americana cuisine we all love to eat at Thanksgiving. Monte dall'Ora is a husband and wife team with a wonderful hillside vineyard where they practice meticulous farming. The result is a wine that excites with pure fruit flavors, and not overwhelming oak or concentration.
