Beautiful perfume of strawberries, cherries and a whiff of mocha. Palate is juicy and succulent with gently ripe, silky red fruits notes. Bright and sleek on the palate with 'just enough' freshness and structure. Well poised and really moreish! Finishes bright and clean as a whistle. L&S (May 2024)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles of wine (or 9 litre equivalent) or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified (4.5 litres) to get the discounted 'case price' for each bottle.

Extremely pale ruby color. A crunchy and fragrant red with aromas and flavors of black-pepper spice and redcurrant fruit. Medium-bodied and slightly lean, with juicy, crisp acidity and light, silky tannins. A bit chalkier on the finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Rating: 90 James Suckling, (Jun 2024)

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.
