Valpolicella, Valpolicella…Sorry I just love saying that.   Valpolicella is a viticultural zone outside of Verona Italy.  Three grapes are usually used to make the red wine known as Valpolicella…there I said it again…Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinera.

 

The Allegrini family has been making wine since the 16th century.  All of that knowledge and history are all wrapped up in this bottle.  The bouquet overflows with cherry, pepper and violet.  The senses are immediately intrigued by the complexity.   Once the juice hits your taste buds…..well let’s just say, “All Hell Breaks Loose.”   Your mind is racing trying to determine all of the flavors, your mouth is watering and your body is begging for more.  Shaking like an addict in withdrawal you raise the glass and  give in to the hedonistic pleasures that await.  The full bodied, rich and velvet texture coats and soothes the tongue.  Savoring the liquid you become aware of the fresh fruit with slight herbal notes.  The slight tannins give you that little pucker and of course that need for more, I am hooked.

Enjoy this delicious wine with light red meats and traditional Italian.

And It’s less than 15$
