Here it was finally time for the reds and in a weird twist, both the lighter bodied Valpolicella and richer Merlot worked well. The Valpolicella offered a fresh, winey counterpoint to the Big Mac’s flavors, while the burger really helped the fruit in the Merlot to pop. The fact that the wine had a subtle, olivey/savory side to it just added to the overall experience.
