Excellent value in this robust, juicy, tasty and savoury Italian red wine. Lovely smoky, oak-mocha on the nose and palate. This wine uses the Ripasso method of grapes to add depth and flavour.

Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore food pairings: pizza topped with steak strips and garlic, spicy sausage , prime rib roast,.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A pleasant wine with notes of ripe cherry, red plum, raspberry floral blossoms and baking spice. Moments after being poured into the glass, this wine opens up and shows a dried fruit and savoury note. The fruit presence is similar on the palate with a slight green (savoury) finish. A lovley food wine! Pizza, pasta, charcuterie, porchetta..... the list goes on... You name it and this wine could match it well. Tasted May 2016. @sommsosa @bespoketastings
This 2011 Ripasso is an excellent value rich and savoury Italian red under $20. Look for dried fruit, cedar spice and cherry liqueur flavours on this smokey red. Pair with braised beef ribs. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
