Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: The Ripasso technique involves taking leftover pomace from the production of Amarone and adding it to simple Valpolicella to kick-start a second fermentation; this method serves to boost the alcohol, body and tannins as well as add layers of complexity to the overall wine. My note: Love it! Savory, meaty, juicy: a wine to chew on with deep satisfaction. Cedar, black cherry layers float happily on full-bodied weight. Valpolicella food pairings: white meat, red meat, game, aged cheeses.
