Bonacosta Valipolicella Classico DOC

One of the classics of the great Veronese tradition, made by Masi in a contemporary style. Valpolicella Classico, praised by Hemingway as “a light, dry red wine, as friendly as the house of a favourite brother”, is made here in an elegant style full of simplicity and freshness. Made in the Valpolicella Classica region from a blend using the traditional Veronese grapes: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. Medium intensity cherry red. The nose is intense bouquet with ripe cherry aromas. The palate is fresh with good acidity, soft and silky tannins. Cherries are the dominant flavour, with hints of vanilla. Typically versatile and good throughout the meal; excellent with soups, pasta and risotto. Enhances both simple food and more complicated dishes based on red meat and moderately aged cheeses.

The Wine Blend Trend

While wine purists may think it is sacrilege, blending...
