IN STOCK
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Veneto
Other Organic
Classification Classico
ABV 12.5%

A beautifully pale, delicately structured style that delivers intense strawberry and cherry fruits, floral notes and just a touch of hawthorn. The palate is fresh and supple, lovely red fruit intensity, with an undercurrent of mocha and a bright juicy acidity. Very immediate and undeniably easy drinking, but with plenty of flavour to keep you going back for another sip. L&S (Oct 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

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.

The Festive Christmas Case
