Cesari Family


One of the reasons that producers of Valpolicella know what they are doing is because of the thousands of years of experience they have. Lots of practice. Stefano Cesari and his family produce the Brigaldara wines. This small family estate is organic and sustainable and practices a socially superior philosophy of taking care of workers and the environment. I also helps that they have some of the best vineyards in San Floriano which is in the heart of the Classico zone. As usual, the 2017 BrigaldaraValpolicella Classico is flamboyant and interesting with an ability to gain complexity with age.

Bear in mind that Corvina, the principal grape of Valpolicella is stylistically in the Pinot Noir genre without the ridiculous price. Stefano’s wines are light to medium bodied with tons of interest and they go with everything from pasta with spicy shell fish to pork chops. This is king of the world for an everyday red.
