Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Ruby coloured in the glass. Notes of cherry, vanilla, anise, woodspice and licorice on the nose. Dry with great depth to the fruit, spicy oak, and vanilla on the palate. Try this one. My note: I like it! Vibrant and mouth-watering dark cherries. Medium-bodied and smooth and ready for lasagna and pizza.

Valpolicella food pairings: rich meat dish, premium dark chocolate, lasagna, pizza.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Pasqua Black Label Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso is light to medium bodied, with integrated notes of strawberry, raspberry, cedar, liquorice and vanilla notes. Tannins are refined (decant for 30 to 60 min), acidity is refreshing and the finish is medium. Drink now to 2014. My impression: NICE, 88.5 pts - nice wine, but you will not find the typical Ripasso here. Tasted Apr/11.
