Vigna 800, Valpolicella Classico DOC (Veneto, Italy) “La Cesolina” 2020

($35):  Light and fresh, Le Cesolina is just what you want with Valpolicella.  Don’t misinterpret the light and fresh moniker to mean vapid.  Not at all.  Though this juicy red wine weighs in at a mere 12.5 percent stated alcohol, it delivers plenty of enjoyment with juicy red cherry-like flavors.  Mild tannins mean it’s a great candidate for chilling and drinking during the summer.  Think of it as a Rosé with flavor.
