Brigaldara

 

Brigaldara Valpolicella has everything I am looking for in a Spring/ Summer/Fall red wine. It is medium-bodied and delicious, exciting and textured, lots happening at an excellent price. The 2019 Brigaldara Valpolicella Classico continues a long history of a wine that goes with just about everything. We had a bottle last night with spicy soft shrimp tacos and one last Friday with a Club Sirloin.

The owner of Brigaldara, intelligent, innovative, and intense Stefano Cesari, runs the place with great respect for tradition. He has achieved the Eualitas Sustainable Wine Certification, employs the entire biodiverse system, and includes high-standard social and business practices. They have sheep and truffles too.

The estate is in the village of San Floriano in the heart of the Classico zone. The vineyards are excellent. Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella grapes compose the blend, which makes for pleasant complexity.

 

The offer today has an exceptional price. Wine arrives this week.
