2006 Bussola, Recioto della Valpolicella, TB (RT 95+) We wrapped up the evening with one of the all-time great Veneto dessert wines and this did not disappoint in any way. With a mere 12/5% alcohol, the dark, dense nearly impenetrable hue wafts up multi-strata of sweet blue berries, blackberries and spice as background notes of dried figs and dates create a captivating bouquet. The palate is slightly sweet resembling nectar of the gods displaying perfect balance and exquisite elegance. This is a magical wine and one of my favorite red dessert wines. Bravo Bussola! In a word, wowzah! Drink now-2046+
