CA' DE' ROCCHI "LA BASTIA" - AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA

CA' DE' ROCCHI "LA BASTIA" - Amarone della Valpolicella - Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara - Veneto, ITALY

With an intense ruby red to purple appearance, this wine has a pronounced nose of fruit cake, plum, vanilla, dried sultana and raisin. The palate is vigorous yet well-balanced structure with a lovely acidity persistent with toasted touches. Perfect with roast and grilled meat, pot roast, game with polenta and imported ripe cheeses.

VINEYARD

The history of the Casa Vitivinicola Tinazzi began with the commitment and passion of Eugenio Tinazzi at the end of the 1960s in Cavaion Veronese, part of the splendid hinterland of Lake Garda.

Gian Andrea Tinazzi, the founder’s son, then only 18 years of age, worked alongside his father in running the business from the outset and, thanks to his decisive and entrepreneurial character, gradually broadened the company's horizons, both in terms of production and markets.

Today, Gian Andrea’s children, Francesca and Giorgio, work with their father in managing what has become a major production group based in Lazise, on Lake Garda. The family owns vineyards and estates not only in Veneto, in the areas of Bardolino and Valpolicella, but also in another region of great character and growing qualitative potential, Apulia, a region they love and which they always believed had great winemaking potential.

The wines of the Cantine Tinazzi are now sold in more than 30 countries around the world.
