A wine for now: 2012 Monte Dall ‘Ora, Saseti, Valpolicella Classico


I was charmed again by the current release of 2012 Monte Dall ‘Ora, Saseti, Valpolicella Classico.  This wine offers a bit of everything with even more presence and a bit less alcohol than the previous vintage.  You may read about that vintage in my post Two Different Wines from Valpolicella.  Simply put, this is a wine that you’ll want to drink several glasses of.  I would even suggest that a glass at a holiday lunch will do no harm.  This wine was purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2012 Monte Dall ‘Ora, Saseti, Valpolicella Classico – $17
Imported by Louis/Dressner Selections.  This wine is a blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Molinara sourced from biodynamic vineyards which were fermented with indigenous yeasts.  Alcohol 11.5%.  The subtle nose bore gentle aromas of fruit.  In the mouth were gentle flavors of ripe cherry and black fruit along with integrated acidity and a bit of structure.  The wine took on dried herbs towards the aftertaste.  This already has good flavor and is best drunk young for it will not be long-lived. ** Now-2016.
