Established in 1996 by Marco and Francesca Satori, Roccolo Grassi has quickly established itself as one of the foremost proponents of quality in Valpolicella and is widely praised for its Amarone, Valpolicella and Soave. He is one of the Veneto?s most promising young producers, easily competing with neighboring wine legends. When most of the growers in the region are sending their grapes to local co-operatives, Roccolo Grassi is giving full attention to the small vineyard holdings and applying sustainable viticulture practices. The winery is focused on producing wines that are modern in style yet ?traditional? in both their flavor and character.
No doubt, this is a simple and sharp wine from northern Italy but it would make a perfect pairing partner to easy grilled lamb or pork chops. It offers clean aromas of wild berry and almond and the mouthfeel is thin and compact.
