Pra' Valpolicella "Morandina" '17

Graziano Pra' comes from a family of winegrowers in Soave who have always had outstanding principles and respect in the vineyards, which includes organic farming, and always strayed away from commercial production to ensure a complete hands-on focused winery. He began his family winery in the early 1980s and has continued to produce outstanding wines full of fresh vivacity.  

While majority of his vineyards in are Soave, since 2001 he obtained about 7 hectares of vineyards in Valpolicella.  We can declare his wines to be some of the freshest, most pure Valpolicella we have encountered.  La Morandina is located on high slopes of the Mezzane Valley, about 1,640 feet in elevation.  Soils are rich in limestone and fossil, definitely lending itself to a certain elegance that keeps his wine so vibrant and full of finesse.  

His Valpolicella sees a brief drying period of 20 days, to add a touch more structure and depth.  The wine is then aged in large oak casks for just 3-6 months.  The wine is packed with fresh berries, a tinge of flowers and minerality and the palate is bouncy with balanced acidity, slight tannins and a touch of spice.  This is your new everyday drinking wine, and a most versatile food pairing. You can even enjoy this with a slight chill.
