Veneto is an important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy. In terms of geography, culture, and wine styles, it represents a transition between the alpine, Germano-Slavic end of Italy and the warmer, drier, more Roman lands to the south. The Speri Winery, with a story that begins in the first half of the 1800s, has now entered its seventh generation making wine from about 60 hectares of vineyards in the most select Valpolicella Classica areas. The Speri family, respecting its territorial heritage, has always cultivated exclusively the native grape varieties of the Valpolicella zone (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and other indigenous varieties), making wine only from grapes coming from its own vineyards and itself overseeing the entire production process.

A deep garnet red in color, it has an ethereal bouquet of dried fruit. On the palate, it is full-bodied, warm, mouth-filling and dry. A substantial wine of rare elegance that lends itself well to ageing. Excellent with richly flavored main courses based on red meat, such as braised meats and game, and perfect with mature cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own at the end of a fine dinner.

Intense floral aromas pour out of the glass on this super-pretty Amarone. As the wine opens, the ripe plum, blueberry and cassis aromas spin in the glass, with a touch of sweet tobacco in the background. The mouthfilling wine is hemmed in with fine tannins and enough acidity to keep lush, dominant fruit flavors at bay. An earthiness at the end keeps you interested in how this wine will evolve next. Drink now-2035.

The organic Speri 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Sant'Urbano sees air-dried Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara to achieve classic results. From a dry vintage, the wine offers extra concentration and richness with dried cherry, blackcurrant, baking chocolate, licorice and some lingering balsam herb. This full-bodied wine reveals a balanced and focused approach.
