Masi, Valpolicella Classico DOC (Veneto, Italy) “Bonacosta” 2020

($17, SM USA):  Masi, one of the leading Valpolicella/Amarone producers, makes a wonderful range of wines.  Made from the usual Valpolicella grapes, Corvina, Rolindella, and Molinara, Masi’s mid-weight Bonacosta, their “regular” (though there’s nothing regular about it) Valpolicella Classico delivers juicy bright cherry flavors.  Fresh and fleshy, its smooth texture makes it perfect for current consumption.  It’s a great choice with a tomato-based pasta or grilled meat.  And it’s a bargain for what it delivers.
