To congratulate the Italians for their 2-0 win over Ghana (and it was a good game - the Ghanans did well, just couldn't finish) we supped on some vino tonight, Brigaldara Valpolicella classico, 2003. Generic Valpolicella is often weak and insipid, but this baby immediately impressed with it's deep hue and stinky nose. On the palate there is a quite a bit of body with pleasing inky, iodinated up front flavours. Would cut into pasta quite nicely.
The verdict: Good.
Value: Excellent at 13 bucks or so.

And, go Togo!!!!
