I Veroni Chianti Rufina Quona Riserva 2014
Need a blast of Tuscan sunshine, sunsets, magic and love in your life? Of course you do, we ALL do! QUONA RISERVA! Nearly 50% OFF?! Certified organic, racy, lip-smacking, rich and warm Chianti Rufina at its finest! We just wish we had more…
...anyway, if you get it, and we strenuously recommend that if you love I Veroni the way we do (glad we discovered them before they started getting all manner of critical acclaim!), here is the deal:
When the box hits, skip happily like a child to your kitchen, get the corkscrew, tear open box with an-ti-ci-pa-tion and make the “pop” happen. Pour some into a glass and pour the rest into a decanter if you have one -- this is big complex stuff and it likes air. Marvel as the perfume fills your kitchen. Go chill in your favorite chair and SAVOR, and we mean SAVOR. So. Good.
One of the very top Rufina estates, this wine is made by none other than super-consultant Andrea Paoletti (ever heard of rockstar Super Tuscans Ornellaia and Tignanello??!) and winemaker/agronomist Paola De Blasi --we are blown away to have it priced like this. Think brambly wild raspberries, dried cherry, black walnut, blood orange oil...then comes the toasty spices, not heavy-handed at all, just pure and bright and flavor-packed! SO GOOD! Get it -- while we have it!
