2015 Valtènesi “La Botte Piena”

La Basia

2015 Valtènesi “La Botte Piena” La Basia - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



With my secondi at Trattoria Caprini in Italy’s Veneto region, I had a hard time deciding which wine would go best with my straéca di cavallo. There was some Amarone on the table, but I felt it was far too powerful. Luckily,  I was sitting next to Giacomo Tincani, winemaker at La Basia, and he poured me a glass of his 2015 Valtènesi. Certo! Medium-bodied, deep red fruit aromas, and perfect with a grilled salt-and-peppered piece of meat. Giddy up! –Steve Waters
