Natalie's Score: 90/100

Remo Farina Ripasso Valpolicella Classico is a juicy, vibrant full-on Italian red wine with mocha flavours from generous oak aging. Lots of black fruit, plums and spice and perfect for the grilled fare. The wine has great balance and structure and is a red wine blend of 50% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella, 5% Molinara and 10% Oseleta. Juicy, robust and vibrant Italian: a terrific wine especially at this price point. Aromas of black fleshy ripe blackberries, black plums and some dark spice. Almost reminds me of Californian Zinfandel but with a darker undertone. Perfect for grilled lamb.

Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore food pairings: hearty winter stew, turkey burgers, pasta with a rich, meaty tomato sauce.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Remo Farina Ripasso Valpolicella Classico is a juicy, vibrant Italian red wine blend of 50% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella, 5% Molinara and 10% Oseleta. Nicely balanced, smooth with fine tannins and a lingering liquid cherry and spicy flavours on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews
