Love that smoky, meaty, sizzling bacon nose! The Antiche Terre was founded in 2000, and in a short time has earned a reputation for respecting the traditions of the Veneto wine region, while injecting some new energy and style into its winemaking. Honkin' big black fruit with great depths of flavour and concentration. A pleasant finish with some notes of tar and smoke. Awesome price! Fire up the grill please!

Ripasso Valpolicella food pairings: grilled steaks, gourmet sausages, hamburgers, pasta with chorizo.

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Nice old world Italian character here; smokey, dark, but nice and round with some raisin-y softness from the ripasso process. Meats and hard cheeses go very nicely with this wine.
This robust red wine is made using the Ripasso method to add more depth and concentration to the final wine. This traditional method from Verona area adds young fresh wine to the Amarone skins of the grapes then referments the wine again so there is both freshness and fullness. - Community Wine Reviews
