Natalie's Score: 90/100

Attractive dark cherry nose with a hint of smoke. Full-bodied and supple and lip-smacking delicious Italian red wine. Try it with combination pizza or spicy sausages. Nice finish. The Speri Family has been making wine for more than 150 years with the fifth generation of the family now at the helm. Remarkably, they use only their own grapes. The 2012 vintage has a satisfying long finish.

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

Reviews and Ratings

The 2012 vintage of this robust Italian red wine features lots of dark fruit and smoke. The word Ripasso comes from the Italian "ripassare" or "going over again" and refers to the ancient local tradition of re-frementing Valpolicella Class free-run juice with the marc of Amarone. The Pigaro referments for 15 days and is then aged in oak barrels for 12 months in oak barrels. - 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.
