Valpolicella Valpantena

I want to continue my description of Valpolicella Wine with a Valpolicella Superiore produced in Valpantena. It is a valley in the region of Valpolicella but outside the border of Valpolicella Classica, the authentic region. We can distinguish it from the label, the word “Classico” is not mentioned.
This wine is so good, the smell is fruit flavoured and the taste too. I’ll compare this wine, in a future post, with the same nomination of the Valpolicella Classica region. I’m expecting a totally different wine. In fact Valpantena is another valley at north of Verona and the sun, the structure of the hills and the ground produce a microclimate very different than Valpolicella Classica region.
In conclusion, many types of Valpolicella are produced here in Verona and in each valley they are very different to the others.

In Valpantena valley there are many wineries, the most important are Bertani and Pasqua.

I will give it a try, but even the Amarones I have tried were not as good as the 2006 Mio. Thanks for the info – more would be appreciated.
