They have been producing craft spirits such as grappa, amaretto and limoncello.The family owns In Mizzole, an important land property, which is composed of eight hectares cultivated with the traditional vines of the region. In Mizzole is a small, ancient village near Valpolicella, which the Marcati family has owned for more than a Century. Valpolicella is a viticultural zone of the province of Verona, east of Lake Garda. It ranks just after Chianti in total Italian DOC (Denominazione Origine Controllata) wine production.
Tenuta Marcati Valpolicella Superiore 2016 was made with Corvina Veronese and Rondinella grapes. The “Superiore” destination requires that the grapes have to be harvested at a slightly higher sugar level than regular Valpolicella.
The wine reveals notes of blackberries, black currants, cocoa powder and Italian herb mix. Valpolicella Superiore 2016 makes good pairing with roasted meats, game and meat pasta, goat and sheep milk cheese. Recommended serving temperature 16-18ºC.
