Natalie's Score: 90/100

A savory, meaty, juicy ripasso: a red wine to chew on with deep satisfaction. Cedar, chewy black cherry layers float happily on full-bodied weight. The Ripasso method takes leftover pomace from making Amarone wine and adds it to a Valpolicella wine to start a second fermentation and in doing so, adds alcohol, body, tannin and flavour to the final wine. Yes please!

Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore food pairings: game, aged cheese, roast turkey, lamb, pasta, grilled steak.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Gorgeous concentration here with almost raisined, cherry fruit aromas. This traditional technique of ripasso truly adds richness and depth to this red wine. - Community Wine Reviews
