This robust and warming Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore from the Veneto wine region is the one you want to have at the ready by the hearth. Ripe dark cherries, dried raisin, fig and dark chocolate flavours with a smoky vanilla finish. This is a comfort wine and with vibrant acidity to go with comfort food.

Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore food pairings: linguini marinara, slow-braised lamb shanks with tomato and garlic, tomato garlic and clam sauce over penne.

Reviews and Ratings

Feudi San Pio 2016 Italy is a Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore from the Veneto D.O.C. Well-priced under $20, this robust Italian red wine is a blend of Corvina and other native grapes. Ripassos have that additional concentration and body because the Valpolicella wine is`repassed over Amarone lees. Lovely cherry liqueur, coffee, vanilla and smoky flavours on this example with a lingering toasty, ripe dark cherry finish. Great acidity for food. Pair with grilled sausages or meaty stews. - 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.
