Yes of course this is much bigger boned and yes of course it is much more hedonistic, but it retains a beautiful sense of balance for all that heft. Boldly aromatic with plum, dark cherry and chocolate, the palate is richly layered with dark fruits, mocha, dark chocolate and just a hint of graphite. But then the acidity shines through giving clarity and balance to the whole thing. Really very good indeed. L&S (Oct 2020)

Ca' La Bionda

We have long been on the search for a great source of top Valpolicella and so when a recommendation came our way from not just Fabio Alessandria at Burlotto, but also Christoph Kunzli at Le Piane we sat up and took note and we loved what we tasted. Ca' la Bionda was established in the commune of Marano di Valpolicella in 1902 by Pietro Castellani a dedicated grape grower and winemaker. Today the fourth generation of the family run the estate along organic lines (certified since 2016) and have recently refurbished the winery to make use of gravity rather than pumps to move the musts and wine. Vineyards have had traditional Marogne (dry stone walls) re-established to give greater exposure to purely autochthonous varieties (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara). Ferments are with purely wild yeasts and Suplhur usage is kept to a minimum.
