Critic Notes

The 2012 Valpolicella is a well-executed wine and a great value. It opens with a dark, brooding appearance and shows immediate aromas of smoked bacon, dried fruit, leather and tobacco. There’s more happening on the bouquet here than virtually any other Valpolicella red at this affordable price point. It’s surprisingly generous in the mouth with long tones of ripe cherry, spice and grilled herb. You’ll be surprised to know that it only sees stainless steel. Drink 2013-2016.
