Deep ruby-red in color, this wine shows intense aromas of blackberries and black currants underscored by aromas of spice pepper, and a hint of leather. On the palate, it is smooth and viscous with well-balanced acidity and alcohol. Pair this wine with risotto, Lyonnaise sauces, beef negimaki, and rabbit ragu.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant Valpolicella, with fine tannins and fresh acidity layered with flavors of ripe black cherry, incense and orange zest. A rich hint of loamy earth lingers on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2021.

Wine EnthusiastSavory and ripe, this has aromas of black currant, underbrush and cooking spice. On the full-bodied palate, white pepper and star anise accent a core of ripe black cherry. Supple tannins lend polish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ripassa offers bold aromatic intensity with relatively subdued aromas of spice, tobacco and dried fruit. The fruit tones come forward as dried raspberry, cassis, plum and blackberry. Despite the full and generous nature of the bouquet, the mouthfeel is snappy and straight-shooting. It shows moderate intensity on the otherwise exaggerated scale of bold Ripasso wines. Bitter almond and sour cherry flavors appear on the close.
