This week I decided to try something new, so I pulled the first wine that caught my eye, Vinny No Neck by Bonacquisti Wine Company. I was then excited to find that it’s a Denver produced wine, which means we can visit the tasting room.
Here’s what they say about their wine.
In honor of our son Vincent (who will be a foot taller once he grows a neck). This Italian style red is a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Violets and cherries, sweet spice box aromas and a smooth easy finish that’s perfect with the 3 P’s, pizza, pasta and pomodori.
What I say about their wine… The description alone made my mouth water. Still, I have a bad attitude about wines with fun names and labels despite the fact that I’m drawn to their bottles and buy them repeatedly. I don’t know why because they suck at an equal rate as wines with boring labels and names. Anyways, on to the verdict.
Just like it says, this wine is flowery and spicy when you cover your entire tongue and I have no complaints about that. The cherry flavor is nice…very nice! It also has no sour after-taste like some red wines, which is greatly appreciated. Wendy LIKE!
Only my dinner selection didn’t include any of the 3 P’s. I had been jonesin’ for a bacon cheeseburgers all day, in a really bad way. I went even further and cooked the burgers in bacon fat. A little out of my mind I guess. Anyways, the wine spiced up nicely and I enjoyed a sip with nearly every bite.
Would I buy this wine again? Absolutely. I give it a 3.75 out of 5
