Valpolicella Classico Doc Rubinelli Vajol | Åsa’s Wine of the Month

“Alread?” my husband asks and looks bewildered at the empty bottle. That’s how you feel when you open a really classic bottle of Valpolicella. Like this one from a producer called Rubinelli Vajol. Lots of fruit and cherries on the nose. Good acidity low in alcohol, only just over 12%. Very nice indeed. You empty the bottle without any effort. I think it is a good sign when you hear a surprised ”already?” when the bottle is finished.

Rubinelli Vajol’s Valpolicella Classico is not a wine that dominates on the dining table. Some wines demand so much attention and almost take over the conversation. For better or worse. This wine does not. It is humble, straight-forward, and nice. It helped elevate our perfectly normal everyday dinner to something better than everyday. Price around 10 euro. rubinellivajol.it
