The superb La Dama vinery is situated in the best commune of Valpolicella, where they make beautifully-modern and pure styles of Valpolicella Classico...
"My name is Gabriele Dalcanale and my passion for grapevines and wines started while attending the college of agricultural studies in my hometown Trento. It continued at University of Padova, where I specialized in oenology and, later, after my graduation, during a year as a researcher at the same institute. After university, I spent a few years working for the well-known Cantine Ferrari in Trento and, later, for Cantine Lenotti, a major winery in the area of Bardolino, near Lake Garda. It was in 2006 that my wife and I began to work on setting up our own business in Valpolicella. With the support of my father in law Giampietro, who immediately believed in our project, we bought the land and built a new modern winery, La Dama. Since then we never looked back, putting all our passion and dedication into what we do, from cultivating our vineyard and working in the cellar, to promoting and selling our products." Gabriele Dalcanale - Owner and Winemaker, La Dama
In a region that is so famously associated with different winemaking processes for its red wines, this Valpolicella Classico is a straight-up, honest Valpol that is designed to reflect the land and not the artistry that's possible in the winery. This style is ready to drink while young, emphasising its strengths - lightness, freshness and vibrancy. Fresh cherries galore!
