It has an intense purple-red colour with purplish highlights. On the nose it has a very clean and intense aroma of ripe red fruit with hints of dark fruit, such as bramble, blackcurrant and ripe cherry. It is velvety and well-balanced, full and round while maintaining a lively and intense grip, with a sapid aftertaste. This dense Ripasso can be easily matched with different Italian dishes: flavoursome pasta and rice dishes such as risotto with porcini mushrooms, grilled and roast meat and medium-matured cheeses.

Wine SpectatorSavory hints of green olive and wild herb lead to flavors of plumped cherry, dried cranberry and tea rose in this bright, medium-bodied red, with lightly chewy tannins that firm the finish. Drink now through 2020.

Wine EnthusiastBoasting sweet spice and rum cake, the 2012 Valpolicella Ripasso awards good pleasure and softness. Pressed cherry, blackberry, resin, tar, espresso bean and teriyaki make up the bouquet. I was less impressed with the mouthfeel that feels short and less impactful.
