Natalie's Score: 88/100

This robust red wine is made using the Ripasso method to add more depth and concentration to the final wine. This traditional method from Verona area adds young fresh wine to the Amarone skins of the grapes then referments the wine again so there is both freshness and fullness. Love that smoky, meaty, sizzling bacon nose!

Ripasso Valpolicella food pairings: grilled steaks, gourmet sausages, hamburgers, pasta with chorizo.

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great nose and flavors of smoke, earth, dark fruit and vanilla - well balanced and a promising potential to age.
Antiche Terre Venete (2014) is a Ripasso Valpolicella from the Veneto wine region. Antiche Terre Venete translates as "ancient Venetian lands," which they are as the wine region is 3,000 years old. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
