“Venice is beautiful, and matching wines are made in its backyard. Delightful, that tarry red valpolicella, rose-scented, that subtle fruit, those dashing acids…

Hard to make, something so sophisticated. In practice, therefore, much valpolicella is more likely to be thin and acidic, or, on the contrary, unrepentantly powerful.

But here, in Cà dei Maghi, the home of the magicians, they know how to conjure up true Valpolicella. It may not be called that because only grape corvina was used here, not the otherwise required valpolicella grapes, but the result is like the valpolicella of your dreams.

Almost rosé-like in color, delicate and bashful in aroma, a taste of silk and lace. Ragfijn. Floats out the glass.

Be quick, because there is not much of it. 470 bottles. We tasted number 13, it was handwritten on it. Does not bring bad luck by any means. Except that we were sorry that we didn’t have bottle 14 to go on as well.”

“Pale fuchsia red. Smells like Turkish fruit and maraschino cherries. Bone dry (though it smells like it’s a little sweet) with masses of tangy acidity and rusty cherry juice, like tannins tiny dogs without yapping teeth biting you on the heels. Energetic, fun and super refreshing. Good pizza wine! (Or baconsarmie wine…) (TC)”
