Sommeliers Recommendation

One of the best value Italian wines on the market. Its crafted from a single vineyard in the most historical zone with organically grown grapes by a family that has farmed this land for 500 years.. Juicy red fruits, crispy acidity and soft, fine tannins this wine is versatile with a range of foods especially tomato based dishes.

The Speri’s presence in this winemaking heartland goes back to 1874, though the original homestead and cellars are even older – 1580. From generation to generation for well over a century, the Speri family have handed down a heritage of pride in their land and passion for its fruits. The family now have 60 hectares of vines in the finest Classico districts, divided into three distinct crus; La Roverina, Sant’Urbano and La Roggia.

In 2015, after practicing years of sustainable farming, the Winery achieved organic certification for all of the production. The Speri family, respecting its territorial heritage, has always cultivated exclusively the native grape varieties of the Valpolicella zone (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and other indigenous varieties), making wine only from grapes coming from its own vineyards.
