Wine of the Week – Marchesi Fumanelli Valpolicella Classic Superiore DOC 2010

Since 1470, Marchesi Fumananlli, in the heart of Valpolicella, Italy, has been making wines. This 2010 Squarano is an elegant, mature and complex wine with a deep ruby red color, made from 40% Corvina, 40% Corvinone and 20% Rondinella grapes.

You won’t be disappointed when you experience the rich fullness of Squarano. 544 years of experience is represented here and the complexity and elegance of the wine will bring you a new appreciation of Italian offerings. Now available in the U.S. from Pasternak Wine Imports, it belongs on your list of outstanding wines.
