Christmas Wine: Brigaldara Valpolicella

Corvina based blends are common in the red wine world of the Veneto in Northeastern Italy.

Valpolicella is perhaps most recognizable for the famed Amarone de Valpolicella which is a rich red wine produced from dried grapes.

Cherry, raspberry, vanilla, baking spice, and cocoa dominate the palate of this sultry wine that features a velvety texture and lengthy finish.

This blend, in addition to Corvina, also has Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara, and a touch of Sangiovese.

While not quite as decadent as an Amarone, this wine is still a luxurious delight.

Indulge this Christmas with this luxurious wine, paired with some dark Ion Greek chocolate for a truly pleasurable combination!
