75cl * 13% ABV * Veneto, Italy
The Cà dei Maghi (“magicians”) estate has been around since the 1950s, but it was taken over by Paolo Creazzi in 2011 and has since become a producer to watch. The vineyards are located at the heart of Valpolicella’s Classico region and hence this offers quite a bit more weight than its cheaper counterparts. Very youthful and primary straight out of the bottle – wild raspberry, dark cherry and strawberry, all tinged with marzipan – it is an exuberant, summery red. Pair with tomato-based pasta dishes.
