2008 Vigna Nuove di Musella VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE (Veneto, Italy)

A crisp, lively red for summertime meals.

Dark ruby with the barest touch of garnet.  Intense, high-toned nose of crisp, winey cherries, rock dust minerals, and fragrant underbrush.  Crisp, intense, dry cherry fruit, with lots of chalky minerals.  Medium body, with fairly crisp acids and a bit of very fine-grained tannin adds a nice tactile feel.  A little short on the finish.  B.  Imported by Vintners Estates Direct, I got this for $17 at Spec's on Smith.
