Tommaso Bussola Recioto Della Valpolicella Tb 2003
Previous bottle from this batch was corked, so I was apprehensive about opening this one for a group. Turned out to be a phenomenal bottle of Valpolicella! Great dark berry fruit, with outstanding minerality I've come to expect from Bussola's Valpolicellas. Drinking extremely well right now, straight from the bottle.
Bad earthy/musty/mildew smell and taste. Group determined "cork taint". Sad...
Again, this was from Vini Volo's BBQ Reds collection, the BBQ title is non sly aside. This corvina blend has dark fruits and the right blend of spices. Delicious with marcona almonds
