- Le Fraghe Bardolino Classico Brol Grande 2013 Product #30947 (In Stock)
Bardolino - a light red from the shores of Lake Garda made with Corvina and Rondinella - is a classic match for salami, meaty fish, or any white meat. This single-vineyard example is from one of the region's best estates and delivers plenty of black cherry and smoke notes in a fleshy, light-bodied, frame. The generous fruit and texture recalls Beaujolais, and like Gamay, it will be a great Thanksgiving red!
- Tedeschi Valpolicella Ripasso Capitel San Rocco 2009 Product #29466 (In Stock)
A Ripasso that sings with food but has the freshness and vibrancy to enjoy by itself.
"Spicy aromas of floral red cherry, quinine, pink peppercorn and fresh herbs. Enters richer and deeper than the Nicalo, with ripe red cherry and red berry flavors lifted by aromatic herbs. Finishes clean and long, but this still needs a lot of time to express itself. A very good Valpolicella Ripasso that does not aim at being a cheap Amarone knock-off but has a Valpolicella dignity all its own. From a selection of grapes from different hillside vineyards than those that give the grapes for the Nicalo."International Wine Cellar 90 points
