Rebounding from the last wine I reviewed, this is another bottle I got for Christmas. D did very well on this one. I hadn’t had a valpolicella in years, and I was LONG overdue! This is a great, great wine. Incredibly smooth, incredibly fragrant, long on tasting notes, and a long finish. Unlike my exes.

This Valpolicella packs a punch at 15%. I had one glass and I saw things I hadn’t seen since my imaginary Woodstock days! It paired very well with the grilled chicken and vegetables I had a few nights ago. I think it would pair well with anything, honestly. Your tasting notes are fragrant and no question that it’s a mouthwatering inhalation of black currant, vanilla, and berries. You can actually TASTE those notes, unlike my last wine, which alluded to but smacked mightily of disgusting vinegar notes instead. THIS is the sublime taste. It’s a semi-dry wine, so make sure you pair it with something juicy so that it compliments your dish. The wine is a fine dark ruby coloring, and the fragrance coming out of the bottle is nothing short of heavenly.

Pricewise? Nothing to sneeze at. Most of the wine vendors online price it between $28.99-$34.99. Completely worth the price of admission!

About generationgbooks

I read a ridiculous amount of books in a ridiculously quick amount of time. I read everything- fiction, history, sports, political science, fantasy, young adults, kids, romance- everything. I have worked in books almost half of my life now, and I never get bored with them. I need an outlet for books, where I can reach many people who may or may not give a fig about my opinions. I'm kind of known for rambling about books, so I figure it's about time I get off my lazy ass and take it to the blogosphere, where I have had the great luck of meeting many wonderful people inflicted with this book-disease. Personal stuff? Not much. I work too much, I'm single so I have more time to deal with this and less to deal with BS. I'm a die-hard Duranie and 80's fan. I am way too entertained with social media and astrology(for those of you who give a fig, I'm a Capricorn, or the sexier description- a seagoat.) for mine and the world's- own good. Only insanity can result from me blogging. That said, here goes!
