I used to buy a lot of Valpolicella but got distracted when it started rising in price. However, the ‘sale’ on Zonin caught my eye, and Valpolicella and me are back together. Who could resist the delicious pure cherry/berry flavours, refreshment, and most of all, the lighthearted feeling. So simple and so much fun. Get a few bottles for week-night sipping, and weekend tippling. Light chilling is essential. And, put a case in the basement for summer picnics/parties.
P.S. Couldn’t work in a line about getting ‘in the Zonin’, but I’m sure you can.
