“A deep but very fresh Amarone with mussel and sea-urchin character to the aromas of blackberries, wet stones, roasted herbs, and a hint of balsamic savoriness. Very tight and nicely chewy, with plenty of dusty tannins that coat the palate before a long, chocolatey finish with savory cocoa-powder bitterness. Drinkable now, but better after 2023.”

“The 2015 Recioto della Valpolicella Casal dei Ronchi is surprisingly savory and fresh, but that’s not to say it lacks any of the intensity or decadent dark fruit that you’d expect from a Recioto. Aromas of baked plums, blackberries, sage, brown sugar and mocha lift up from the glass. It’s velvety in texture, impressing with a contrasting mix of tart wild berries and bitter notes of baker’s chocolate and coffee. For all of its power and persistence, the energy remains remarkably high, propelled by vibrant acids, as notes of spiced and candied citrus, raisins and dried black cherries linger long.”

About The Winery
Serego Alighieri is one of the most prestigious and historic Venetian estates with a tradition of winemaking in Valpolicella dating back more than 650 years. It all began in 1353 when Pietro Alighieri, son of 'the Supreme Poet' Dante, bought the Casal dei Ronchi vineyard in Gargagnago in the center of Valpolicella Classica, which remains at the heart of this historic property today. In 1549 when the Alighieri family found itself with only female heirs, they married into the powerful imperial Serego family, resulting in the Serego Alighieri name which the family has carried on ever since. Most recently, in 1973, Tenuta Serego Alighieri joined the Masi Group, with whom they share a great love for the land. The Masi Technical Group, under the leadership of Raffaele Boscaini, substitutes the figure of the winemaker with that of a team of experts including oenologists, agronomists, marketing experts, chemists, and food product technicians. Today, the property where 21 of Dante's descendants have lived generation after generation, is a landmark site for viticulture and the embodiment of the true spirit of Valpolicella.
