2020 Monteci Rondinella
This wine will surprise you with it's character and drinkabilty. Don't let the low price fool you. This is good wine! One to stock up on. Fun on its own - can even put a slight chill on it and sip it on a hot day. Will pair well with appetizers, salumi, poultry, light vegetarian dishes and various Mediterranean cuisine: rice dishes, curry, tagine... The Righetti family have been vine growers and wine makers for three generations, and they have tied their destiny to the rich and fertile land of Valpolicella. They are dedicated to crafting wines of the highest quality at affordable prices - and we think they have succeeded beyond a doubt! 100% organic Rondinella from the Classico region. Handpicking in late September. Fermentation on the skins. The malolactic fermentation occurs naturally as the temperature rises after winter. This process bestows the wine even more elegance and softness. The wine is aged for 6 months in stainless steel before bottling. Ruby red, fairly bright color. Medium-bodied. Juicy. Complex aroma, marked floral notes of violet, fruity hints of cherry, strong hint of raspberry. The finish offers a pleasant sweet, spicy note. Nice flavor, soft and intense, pleasant acidity, full-flavored and well-balanced.
