Azienda Agricola Buglioni has a bit of a chip-on-the-shoulder attitude, for the family made its living in the textile industry and was not considered serious when it moved into wine in 2000. Buglioni’s wines are aimed for this enoteca culture. Buglioni is able to balance elegance and docility without losing the tones, textures and aromas that make Valpolicella’s wines so unique.
The l'Imperfetto Valpolicella Classico Superiore opens with aromas of dark cherries, chocolate, tobacco mixed with sweets spices and a touch of grilled herbs all taking shape in the glass. This has an impressive round silky texture with wonderful balance of ripe fruit and acidity as it heads into the long finish. It's good now but can age for another 10 years.
