Begali vineyard 3 Bottle Selection

£65.00 Regular price

Azienda Begali Lorenzo is a family-owned Valpolicella wine estate at Cengia, not far from Lake Garda. It makes a range of wines under the designation, headed by its award-winning Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, Monte Ca'Bianca.

The estate consists of 12 hectares (30 acres) of vineyards set among cherry orchards, split between the Monte Ca'Bianca and La Cengia vineyards. Corvina is, unsurprisingly, the main variety planted, followed by Corvinone, with smaller amounts of Rondinella, Oseleta, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The grapes for the Amarone and Recioto wines are dried in an open room in stackable wooden trays, and the red wines are aged in a combination of large tonneaux and smaller barriques.
