L’arco rosso del Veronese IGT – organic and natural
Luca Fedrigo approaches winemaking and farming with a natural, minimalist approach. His philosophy evolved in his teens working alongside the famous Valpolicella guru, Giuseppe Quintarelli. The artistry of Quintarelli in the winery has blossomed in the L’Arco cuvées through a traditional style, long aging, and masterful blending.
The Estate takes its name from a stone arch, called “Arco di Giove”, and near the farmhouse where the Fedrigo family resided until a few years ago.
The “youngest” of winemaker Luca Fedrigo’s characteristically bold blends, Rosso del Veronese is the sexy two-seater sports car among the portfolio’s “luxury” labels. Sangiovese fattens up the wine and makes it both interesting and age-worthy. The grape amps up the blend’s flavor profile and brings the addition of dark cherries and a teasing hint of lavender. The finish outperforms for a medium-bodied wine, hanging on amid gripping tannins. Bold fruit, a long finish, Rosso del Veronese is a seductive bottle among Fedrigo’s range.
This wine represents an estate blend with classic Valpolicella grapes; Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara, along with the secret ingredient, Sangiovese. The Sangiovese heightens the red fruit component in the blend, a fruit-forward style with complex aromatics of herbs, underbrush, and fruit. The palate is supple and relaxed with tannin and acidity that provide texture and are only revealed in the finish creating length.
50% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 15% Sangiovese Grosso, and 5% Molinara.
Keep the menu old-school traditional for this fun wine: Spaghetti and meatballs, veal parmigiana, roasted leg of lamb, grilled steak with sautéed mushrooms.
