While bright ruby in color, the 2016 Valpolicella Superiore is a dark and serious wine that demands your attention. Rosy florals give way to crushed cherry, blackberry, wild herbs, hints of cinnamon and sweet white smoke. It’s silky-smooth and textural yet medium-bodied, coming across as elegant, refined but also lively and fresh, with tart red berries, minerals and a hint of espresso bean giving way to a coating of fine tannin toward the close. The balance here is on point, showing youthful structure and persistent primary fruit throughout the mouthwatering finale. As good as this is today, a few years of cellaring may reveal even further depth, though you really don’t need to wait. (Eric Guido, Vinous, February 2021)
