Yea, this baby got back and she’s stacked.  This voluptuous wine  soothes and excites all at the same time.  Like listening to your favorite Barry White song  with an exotic dancer moving slowly in front of you.

There is so much depth to this wine. So many elements competing for attention.  The aromas erupting from the bottle your olfactory system (yes I had to use that word) will go into overdrive.  Plum, violets, cherry blossoms and more fill the room starting the hypnosis that will eventually set in.

Once in your mouth your body will hit nirvana.  That peaceful feeling that leads you into bliss.  All of the flavors pop in your mouth like an eruption.  Each flavor taking its turn at lead.  Like the sirens of lore beckoning you, your body eases into complete relaxation.  What a wonderful feeling.  Very lite tannins follow a very long finish.Pure pleasure.

Enjoy

$$  a phenomenal value.

An Italian staple; Valpolicella
An Italian staple; Valpolicella

Another gem.  Under $10. Who doesn’t love a great wine and a fabulous price. In this case a Valpolicella. To be more precise, Valpolicella is a region or province, in Verona Italy. Valpolicella is second to Chianti in production. It is typically made from three grapes; Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara. It is usually not aged ( or at least not long) and released very young.It is light and fruity by nature.

This wine fits all of the above descriptions. A light ruby – Dorothy need not worry about those shoes- color. By looks, refreshing and fruity. If energetic can describe a wine…then this would be it.

The aromas remind me of an early Spring morning. Lots of fresh fruit notes, clean and crisp, like walking through a blooming orchard in the crisp cool morning.

Such a warming and delightful taste. Almost against the mentioned notes.The wine covers the palate with a soft and elegant but velvet, touch. A smooth rich fruit mouth envelopes the senses. A simple wine-full of  flavor. Hints of oak linger, a very minor bit of tannin, but oh that fruit.

Enjoy
