Rich and smooth. A great value to have available in the general section, so you don't have to run out and buy a bunch before they are gone.
Amazing QPR! Classic stuff from an Iconic Amarone producer that I'm sure is as synonymous as MASI when it comes to Amarone/ Ripasso wines.

A ruby red medium to full bodied valpolicella. This wine has a certain elegance and balance that is endearing and approachable. Mild oak, vanilla, spice and cherry are nicely integrated with soft tannins and acidity. There's just a hint of confected sweetness, but again, balanced with a touch of bitterness and heat on the lengthy finish. I paired it with a mushroom, roasted garlic and spicy sausage pizza, but it could stand up to red meat dishes or rich pastas as well. Don't "pass over" this nice wine especially while on sale.
