Sipping Fine Wine

Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits and smoky herb spice, made from mostly Corvina grapes. On the palate flavors of ripe black cherry, blackberry, dried floral herbs and nutty notes. Medium body with lively acidity, fine tannins on medium finish ending with cacao, smoky tobacco and ripe fruit. Drink to enjoy now, minimal aging benefit.

Not my favorite example of one of my favorite wines. Lacked integration despite having many of the right components.

Good Italian table wine. Not one I will seek out for $20 a bottle.

Loads of red fruit, plenty of spice, subtle hints of raisin and vanilla. Great pizza and pasta wine. This one is still nice and bright, love the red fruit. Simple and quaffable.

Very drinkable pizza and pasta Valpolicella. Enough fruit and structure to make it an everyday value drinkable wine.
