Fattori began making wine in 1900 in this Northeastern region of Italy. Now, as a 5th generation run operation, they are turning out wonderful wines. Made from 85% Corvina along with Rondinella, Molinara and a few other varieties, this offers light, bright cherry, black cherry, pomegranate, rhubarb and plum notes. This fairly simple wine is an ideal companion with a diversity of foods. It’s not an aggressive, heavy tannic thing, but a mellow, warm and delightful wine meant to work well with others. Briefly aged, the fruit is perky and beaming.
50% Corvina / 20% Rondinella, 25% Molinara / 5% indigenous varietals. Deep ruby in color. The nose is nice with cherries and baking spice. On the palate, this has deep cherry fruit. Good acidity. Slight tannins. This wine is correct and everything expected for a nice Valpolicella including the price - $18. Will work with medium and heartier foods and if needed, on its own too.
