Natalie's Score: 89/100
Mocha-dark chocolate on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with a firm tannic grip on the palate and lots of mouth-watering acidity. Decant for 1-2 hours. Pair with hearty meat dishes like a coffee-rubbed grilled chicken or steak.

Reviews and Ratings
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of raspberry and cherry. The palate adds strawberries, vanilla, herbs and some raisin.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Tart dark cherry and mocha liqueur aromas up front with tastes of blackberry, dark cherry, pepper, and dark chocolate. The tannins and acidity remind you that this is a wine rather than a liqueur. Wow. This would be a fantastic wine for after dinner, sitting in front of the fire, or with juicy rare red meats like prime rib.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A blend of 83% Malbec, 17% Cab Sauv with an aromatic Damson plum nose. The palate shows jammy Damson plum, baking spice, vanilla and oak. Full-bodied, smooth, harmonious and well-balanced with a long plum finish.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A Corvina dominated blend from Veneto region of Northern Italy. Juicy strawberry, raspberry and cherry, floral, vanilla, raisin, dried herbs with a touch of eucalyptus on the back. The tannins are drying and acidity medium+. A pleasing finish of tart cherry and leather. Serve with finer cuts of beef, mature cheeses or dark chocolate. Decant 1-2 hours.
Tasted: March 2015
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
The 2012 vintage of Feudi San Pio Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore is 14.0% ABV and ruby red. This Italian gem shows red berries, sour cherries on the nose with bitter dark chocolate, fresh plum and blackberry on the palate. Mouthwatering, full-bodied, high acidity, medium plus tannins, this is a great red for pairing with high acidity Italian foods such as spaghetti bolognese. Ready to drink now.
|This Italian red wine is made using the Ripasso method, first popularized by Amarone. Pair with spaghetti and meat balls. - Community Wine Reviews|
