Meet Your New Go-To Red, Begali’s $23 Valpolicella Classico
February 12, 2020
A Note from Sergio

What, exactly, is a value wine? Is it merely the wine's cost? Is it the uniqueness of the wine or its rarity? Is it the ratio between its price and your budget? Is it the price for this wine relative to other wines of the same genre? Is it the over-performance for a vintage or price? Is it finding a pristine, mature wine for the price of a new release? Or is it a mysterious combination of these factors that imbues a wine with "value"?

In the case of today's offer, value sits in the ratio between the deliciousness of the wine relative to its cost. The first is very high, and the latter is pretty low.

I've always believed that you can drink great wine at all price points, and today's classic Veneto wine proves this truth. I'm delighted to present a new allocation of the 2017 Valpolicella Classico from Begali, and this juicy, food-friendly wine drinks better than a $23 bottle of wine has any right to do. The family-run Begali winery consistently crafts wines that illustrate how a good bottle of inexpensive wine is a truly beautiful thing. Consider this excellent Valpolicella an excellent introduction to its Amarone, which is always a treat--or just consider this wine your new go-to red. Either way, you'll find this wine's true value comes from sharing it with people you love.

Begali’s delectable Valpolicella Classico is easy to pop and pour and enjoy again and again! Pure red berries cavort on a bed of woodland moss, wildflower petals, spices, river rocks and earth in Begali’s charming ’17 Valpolicella Classico. This wine is about food-friendly immediate drinkability, and it shows an alluring balance between its fine tannins and bright acidity that linger on the savory, mineral-laden finish. A blend of 60% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, and the remainder local grape varietals, grapes ferment in stainless steel, and the wine ages for a year in botti before resting in bottle. more info
