2018 Degani - Valpolicella Classico @degawine @valpolicellawines 路 鈩癸笍 This wine is from the Veneto region of Italy, just outside of Verona. The wine is a blend of 40% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 25% Corvinone, and 5% other grape varieties. The vineyard is all estate owned, sustainably farmed, and hand-harvested. The grapes are then crushed, start fermentation, then stored in stainless steel tank before being bottled路 馃憗 Medium- ruby color路 馃憙 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of bright red fruit, ripe sour cherry, ripe cranberry, ripe raspberry, white pepper, sage, thyme, and blood orange路 馃憚 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, medium alcohol (13%), medium-sized ripe tannins, and medium- body. A medium-length finish of sour cherry and blood orange路 馃敂 This wine is a straight forward enjoyable wine that is an excellent alternative to lighter red wines that can't stand up to food. This wine pairs well with food due to its high acidity. There is a lovely ripeness to the fruit profile and a little hint of some herbal notes. Overall, a crowd-pleaser. More people should be exploring the wines of Valpolicella.
