Visit the velvet underground; a dark wine for late nights

Official Name

This rich and opulent red wine from Northern Italy, takes the elements of the light and fresh Valpolicella and transforms them into a deeply delicious, supercharged version. The grapes are dried in the sunshine so that they become sticky and intense and this then goes into the wine to create a wine that resembles dark cherries dipped in chocolate. The lower tannins and acidity make it great with slow cooked foods but a prime candidate for a late night swirler.
