I’ve enjoyed the Scaia rosso starting with the 2007 vintage. Many of you may already be familiar with Scaiaespecially if you’ve been a frequent buyer of The Dirty Dozen; the Scaia goes in nearly every vintage.
And yet, the2012 Scaiadistinguishes itself from past bottlings. Now the varietal, Corvina, is prominently written on the handsome, newly updated front label and Veneto is identified as the IGT or indicazione geografica tipica. But more importantly, it is the wine that makes the 2012 their finest effort. For a 100% Corvina it is pleasantly dense and rich at the core while still maintaining freshness and light tannins. The fruit is all red cherry with a thread of green, typical of the grape.
And Pete is right when he wrote, “life’s too short to not enjoy something special at least once a month.”Splurging is good, but if you can’t (or don’t want to) you shouldn’t have to jeopardize quality in order to enjoy an affordable glass of wine. It may take a bit more effort on your part to find such a wine, but that’s why you have us here at The Wine House – to help you find the best possible wine to enjoy at any price.
