Giuseppe Lonardi, Valpolicella Classico D.O.C.
(vahl-pohl-ee-CHAY-lah KLAH-see-ko)

 

Tasting Notes: Even though they are Veneto’s three most important red varietals, few outside of Europe have ever heard of the outstanding Corvina, Rondinella, or Molinara grapes. Classically, they are a delightfully “dusty” palate of dried strawberries, cranberries, even the bittersweet of rhubarb. Glycerin levels are modest, giving the wine a refreshing composition that is perfect for spicy, warm-weather foods. An everyday favorite in and around Venice.
