Righetti. Corvina 'Campo Tordi'
A nice bit of burnt damson jam and violet on the nose. Fresh tasting with unforced strawberry and bramble fruit. Straightforward Valpolicella style, not too refined, proper wine. 12.5%
A step outside of the sometime constrictive Valpolicella disciplinari: Corvina can be taken from anywhere in the Veneto; in reality Righetti only buy from within Valpolicella, and this is a good way to raise the profile of this absurdly under-rated grape variety. The style is simple - ripe, hand-picked Corvina fermented and aged in temperature-controlled steel tanks.
