Vintages Wine Panel: Ripasso (or “re-passing”) involves fermenting the Vapol wine a second time on dried Amarone grapes. This process deepens the wine’s colour, body, aroma, taste and ageability. Farina’s Ripasso features aromas of pepper spice, licorice, cherries, and ginger, all contributing to a medium-bodied, long-finishing wine. My note: Peppered black cherry liqueur with a nice bite that makes me want to bite back. Full-bodied, mouth-watering and a surprisingly rich, long finish.

Valpolicella food pairings: grilled veal chops and herbed tomato salad.

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.
