Valpolicella Classico DOC Begali takes its name from the production area: vineyards spread out on the hillsides and foothills in the heart of the Valpolicella classica area, on silty, clay soil.
It is aged in in stainless steel vats and matured in bottle.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Ideal for first courses such as pasta or pizza, but also with white meat, vegetables and as a summer red to drink with fish dishes. Should be served at a temperature of about 16°C.
We have worked with the lovely Begali family for a very long time. Lorenzo and Adriana, followed on from Lorenzo’s father who began making wine after the second world war. They started selling their first bottles in 1986, and have since involved their son Giordano and daughter Tiliana. They produce their wines on an estate of 12 hectares between Lake Garda and Verona, in the classic area for Valpolicella. This family run winery in the small borgo of Cengia, is nonetheless a top Valpolicella estate, having won plenty of Tre Bicchieri awards in the famous Gambero Rosso guide, Slow Food and Wine Spectator.
Begali are also part of the consorzio of historic Amarone families, an association founded in 2009, dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of this famed style, whereby the wine is made from selected bunches of grapes dried in the autumn on straw to concentrate the sugars and dry extract. As such it’s high in alcohol but not fortified.https://www.begaliwine.it/
