Wine Spectator 93
"Savory hints of cured tobacco and smoke meet wild strawberry and crushed black cherry fruit in this burly red. The silky palate carries accents of star anise and graphite to the lasting finish. Best from 2018 through 2029.”

"Cellar Selection**** " Bold and velvety, this offers enticing scents of ripe black cherry, spiced plum, blue flower, baking spice and a whiff of new leather. The luscious yet focused palate delivers juicy blackberry, crushed black raspberry, raisin, licorice and a hint of dark chocolate while firm, velvety-textured tannins provide support. Drink 2018–2029."

The history of our family has always been intimately bound to the art of winegrowing.
Here in San Pietro in Cariano, we are in the heart of the classic zone, and caring for our own land here has always been an important part of our daily life, right from childhood.
This sensitivity has been passed onto us by our father Angelo, who transformed his passion for his land into a consummate skill for making wine. Since1951, we have committed all of our efforts to producing world-class wines, weaving our own personal goals into the precious fabric of Valpolicella's history and distinctive character. The Nicolis name sums up the history of an entire family.
Each member has a mission that revolves around the earth and wine. Giancarlo focuses painstaking attention on the vineyards, while Giuseppe ensures that the winemaking is expert and natural.
