Ca’ La Bionda
Valpolicella Classico Superiore Casalvegri

Ca’ La Bionda is nestled in the common of Marano di Valpolicella, in the heart of the historically classic zone of Valpolicella. The winery was founded in 1902 by Pietro Castellani, and their organically certified 29 hectares of vineyards is currently overseen by the fourth generation. This single vineyard blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, and 10% Rondinella and Molinara is planted in very rocky clay limestone at 150-300m. It was fermented in steel, and aged for 18 months in 3000L barrels. Morello cherries, subtle wax, worked suede is lit with bright limestone acidity, streaming this fresh, medium bodied red to a stony spiced finish. Tannins are long and fine, and the lively acidity is limestone laced. Very finessed and graceful.

“ Crushed stone, graphite, dried cherry and currant form a dusty and coy but seductive bouquet on the 2019 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Casalvegri. This is a pure and cool-toned expression, with tart red and shades of blue fruit and bright acids that make this a pleasure to taste. It leaves subtle twang of tannins, while tapering off perfumed and lightly structured with a hint of sour citrus. Very nice. The Casalvegri is a single-vineyard Valpolicella Superiore that’s picked early to maintain acidity, and it matures for eighteen months in large neutral oak casks. Give it another year to fully come together. Drink 2023-2028” - 90 points, Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2022.
