Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2020

Delectable Wine

There’s a mentholated freshness that keeps me coming back to the 2020 Valpolicella, as bright cherries, licorice and hints of smoke form its bouquet. It is soft-textured and pure, with red berries and minerals motivated by brisk acids. This leaves rosy florals and a gentle tug of tannin, making for a pleasantly dry finale.

Villa Novare Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2015

£11 from the local co-op. We’re worth it we thought. It’s a lovely drop. Lavender, dark berries and chocolate on the nose and pallet. Easy drinker. — 4 years ago

San Sisto Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Riserva 2016

From Bertani domains, this is an outstanding reserve verdicchio. Slight salinity reminded me of the love child of a Pessac white BORDEAUX and muscadet. Lovely lees aging and partial ml, an easy to drink food wine that still has a couple more years of effortless joy to offer.

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2006

The antithesis of the afore-mentioned Bertani. This was Port by another name. BlackBerry Jam in a wine bottle. Potent, Sludgy and sweet. Hard to see this evolving much for another century... — 4 years ago
