Amarone’s Fresh Affordable Little Sister!
2011 CANTINA DI NEGRAR VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO
(60% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella)
NOW IN STOCK AT THE SHOPS!
Valpolicella from Italy’s Veneto region can be all over the map stylistically –
ranging from thin, insipid plonk, to overripe, jammy prune juice.
So when we tasted this perfectly balanced little gem for 11.99, we bought a bunch!
It is medium bodied with an excellent flavor concentration of various red fruits
and a bit of spice on the palate. The smooth velvety texture is complemented with
near perfect acidity.
