Tenute SalvaTerra was born in Cengia, a hamlet of San Pietro in Cariano, in the heart of the classic Valpolicella, in one of the most beautiful Venetian residences of the late 15th century: Villa Giona, surrounded by cypresses, olive trees, centuries-old stone walls, and vineyards. The estate exists as an expansive verdant garden, with an excellent winery onsite.
Valpolicella is the over-reaching growing region in Veneto that produces deep red wines from Corvina. The wines of this region, even when not made in a ripasso style, produce incredibly rich and complex wines. This is your perfect steak dinner bottle.
Tasting Notes: Corvina, Rondinella, Corvinone. This wine sits in the glass reflecting a bright ruby color. The nose evolves bright Cherry, wildberries, and a touch of spice. The palate is deep and rich, with a long-lasting finish.
