Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 90/100
Savoury and delicious; tastes like twice the price. Blackberry, cedar, wild black raspberry aromas on the nose. Some kind of wonderful! There's some lovely dried herbs, mocha-dark chocolate and smoke on the finish. Try it with Italian cheeses and try not to smile.
Ripasso Valpolicella food pairings: game, hearty beef stew, grilled veggies, turkey sandwich, borscht, meaty pasta, grilled beef, flavourful cheeses.

Reviews and Ratings
|Louise Wilson - ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Offering a bouquet of dried cranberry, violet and seasoned wood, followed by a palate of fresh and dried cherry, sage and sandlewood. Medium bodied with just a touch of oak. Perfect with carpaccio.
|Fans of Amarone often look to Ripasso wines for a lighter take on the signature wine styles of Veneto. Valpantena’s Torre del Falasco makes a great introduction to Ripasso – but really, at this price, even seasoned Veneto lovers shouldn’t miss this one. Look for dark cherry fruit framed by silky tannins, milk chocolate and baking spices. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.|
