#wsetschool Light and youthful Valpolicella that seems underripe with its vegetal, green pepper and red cherry notes. Signs here of carbonic maceration with a false bubblegum scent. Simple wine with high acidity, but low tannins and light body - a bit more red fruit of strawberry and raspberry on the palate but it lacks a finish.

Real slurpable this. That slight leather, so typical of Italian wines. Otherwise cherry, plum, almond and pistachio with pomegranate and basil.
