Read about Speri
Established in 1874 and now led by the fifth generation, Speri’s fifty hectares of vineyards are located in Valpolicella’s historical heartland, divided into three distinct crus of La Roverina, Sant’ Urbano and La Roggia. La Roverina, unique to the region in that it is a value-for-money, single vineyard Valpolicella, is a classic blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara that yields a plummy, medium-bodied dry red with a touch of assertiveness and a hint of spice. Ripasso comes from the word ripassare (going over again) and refers to Valpolicella that re-ferments on the lees of Amarone, resulting in greater weight and complexity. Speri’s Amarone is a thrilling version of the king of Veronese wines, characterised by the deepest black colour, an intense bouquet with spicy, aromatic and jammy notes and a powerful palate with measured finesse.
