With Bonacosta(13.99), a light summer red wine, those who typically enjoy a white or rosé may find they would rather indulge in this zesty departure. It is one of the classics of the great Veronese tradition, made by Masi in a contemporary style. It’s the light, dry red wine praised by Hemingway (The Globe and Mail) as “friendly as the house of a favorite brother.” It’s simple and fresh.
Perhaps you have heard of the “Hemingway Cure”? Originally founded In Venice: scampi and Valpolicella. The novelist famously prescribed himself a steady diet of the seafood-and-red-wine pairing in 1954 during an extended stay at the Gritti Palace hotel on the Grand Canal. He had checked in to convalesce in high style following injuries suffered during a jarring period in Africa, having survived a fire and two plane crashes, one of five times the writer cheated death (Time).
Made in the Valpolicella Classica region from a blend using the traditional Veronese grapes: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara.
GRAPE VARIETIES Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara
