Natalie's Score: 90/100

This full-bodied red wine hails from one of Italy's top producers, and certainly also one of it's most consistent vintage after vintage. Tasty and full-bodied with lovely black fruit aromas, dark spices and some smoke. I love a half bottle, which is perfect for a very fun night on your own or when you just want a glass and an half each for a certain course, like a meat dish or sausages. Elegant with a dry finish.

Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore food pairings: grilled turkey, pasta.

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Pretty black cherry, plum and raisin notes from this classic ripasso. Medium body and soft tannin allow maximum flexibility when food pairing. Enjoy with a wide range of dishes from salmon with dill sauce to pork picatta. Drink now through 2015. Tasted Jan 2014.
The half-size bottle of our popular Essentials item (910430). Made from the Valpolicella grape and enriched by being "passed" over grape skins from Amarone production. The result is a robust and flavourful wine that will show dark cherry, blueberry and mocha with earth and spice accents. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews, undated.
