Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Pergole Vece is especially spry and lifted, offering smoky minerals, citrus-tinged blackberries and hints of confectioner’s spice. It keeps the energy high from start to finish, as silky textures gain momentum through juicy acids, giving way to medicinal cherries, minty herbs and a hint of bitter espresso bean. The 2016 doesn’t miss a beat, with a caking of fruit concentrate creating a sensation of tension under an air of sweet inner florals."- Eric Guido, Vinous Media, January 2021

The Producer

Le Salette

Founded in 1860, Le Salette is well-established as one of the leading producers in Valpolicella, located in the fabled sub-area of Fumane. Farming 20 hectares of vines, the estate cultivates Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta, Molinara, and Croatina.

Managed by the historic winemaking family Scamperle, current winemaker and proprietor Franco Scamperle is adamant that each wine must be allowed to express the character of the soil from where the grapes are grown. That belief is paired with their commitment to sustainable methods and the philosophy of ‘never forcing nature’ by following the natural viticultural cycle and originality of the soil and grape characteristics.
