Woodsy, with deep fruit and hit of spice. It's in tense dark cherry is a reminder of why I love Valpolicella and all it's richness and complexity. The tannins are broad and smooth making this a deceptively charming wine, next thing you know you're wondering where it went!
Pair with duck confit grilled cheese, raclette, rack of lamb, or a spicy tartar.
Villa Girardi Bure Alto Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2011, Veneto D.O.C., Italy: 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! Drink: 2014-2018. 161844 13% D 750 mL $17.00 Score: 90/100. March 1, 2014 Best Value Red Wine. Terrific Turkey Wine Full Review
