Must-Know Wine Basics: Advanced Wine Guide
The Wine Blend Trend
Before this wine completely overtakes me, and I polish off the bottle, I better review this puppy!! For the 99.9% of you who don't know me, I am a freak for Valpolicella, Ripasso and Amarone (Fav style of wine!!), and this one is a home run (to use the Sport - Blue Jay's - Analogy!). On the nose you get all the currant, ripe red berry and raisin, plus a little vanilla and toasted nut! This is mimicked on the palate only in high volume!!! The Tannin, alcohol and acid are beautifully married to create a gorgeously balance wine that pairs exceptionally well with grilled red meat and rich accompaniments (think Onion Jam, steamed potatoes and veggies and home made garlic bread!)!
A new favourite for sure!! I will be looking for their version of Amarone and Ripasso!
