There’s a very good new Valpolicella (light red) on the shelves from a producer called Sartori that’s got the classic frank fruitiness and refreshing edge that makes Valpolicella so gulpable. And so good with any food ““ pasta, pizza, burgers, wings, pork loin ““ everything other than the heavy meats. I over-chilled my bottle and it turned out perfect. An hour in the fridge, or ten in the freezer ““ and you’re ready for the patio.
Cannot understand why wineries present light reds in serious-looking packaging ““ with a traditional cork. Fun, light wines like this need to be in clear glass, with a screw cap, so the package tell the shopper what to expect.
