Description

Valpolicella may not be the most well-known wine style in New Zealand, nor its grape varieties the easiest to remember, but the first sip of this juicy wine will have you speaking Italian. Valpolicella now produces the second largest volume of DOC wines, only just behind Chianti, and Castelforte brand makes some superb values.
