Buglioni 'Il Bugiardo' Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore 2019


Buglioni own 36 hectares (89 acres) of vines planted to the traditional indigenous varieties of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara, Oseleta, Croatina and Garganega. The 14 hectares (34.6 acres) of vineyards planted near the winery are trained using the double pergola system, while the remaining vineyards in Sant’Ambrogio and San Pietro in Cariano are trained using the guyot system. The lightly textured, gravelly, dark alluvial soil, meticulous vine pruning, and scrupulous control techniques Buglioni employs ensure the production of high-quality grapes.

Dark ruby red colour. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit and spices, with a slight scent of vanilla and tobacco. Persistent and warm flavor, velvety and harmonic.

Pairings: grilled fine red meat, chateaubriand and beef fillet, risotto with Ripasso, medium/high-aged cheeses. Its slender shape helps cleanse the palate when combined with stews, ragù or with the classic Veronese boiled meats
