Natalie's Score: 89/100

Smoky black cherries on the nose, juicy, smooth, full-bodied weight and texture, finishes with black plum note. Ripasso translates to “re-passing” and means fermenting Valpolicella wine a second time with dried Amarone grapes to deepen the flavour, body and persistence of the wine. I love persistence in a wine: shows great character! Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore food pairings: grilled veal chops, pasta, beef stew, herbed tomato salad. Best Beef Wine

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A lengthy palate of juicy blackberry, floral and vanilla notes from this Amarone look-a-like. An outstanding value with plush ripe tannins and high alcohol, perfectly offset by concentrated fruit and fresh acidity. Drink now through 2018. Partner up with bigoli in salsa. Tastes Feb 2014.
Ripasso (or "re-passing") involves fermenting Valpolicella a second time on dried Amarone grapes. This process deepens the wine's colour, body, aroma, taste and ageability. Farina's Ripasso features aromas of pepper spice, licorice, cherries and ginger, all contributing to a medium-bodied, long-finishing wine. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.
