Timo @Wineshout rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The Folonari Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso 2009, a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese from Veneto, is medium bodied with a ruby complexion. I didn’t get a sense of the dry fruit – slash – raisin aromas that some have touted, but there was a discreet spiciness, plump cherries, and a soft touch of oak that compliments rather than dominates. The finish is on the shorter side. A nicely balanced wine with an old-world sensibility.

Like most wines from Italy, this one is best served with grub. We paired it with some Italian cold cuts – what’s the Italian word for charcuterie? – though pasta, risotto and most meaty things Italian will do the trick.
Joan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I love this wine because I'm getting a delicious well structured "Amarone" like wine at a great price. This style of Valpolicella has been "re-passed" on the lees of a previously fermented Amarone wine and so turns an everyday table wine into a rich and complex wine.
