Natalie's Score: 91/100

A juicy, savoury and well-priced Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore from the Veneto wine region. Full-bodied with rich dark fruit, smoky and toasty oak spice flavours on the palate from oak ageing. Well-structured and balanced with supple tannins. "Storia antica" translates to "ancient history," and in recognition of the old world wine style of drying grapes prior to fermentation.

Valpolicella Ripasso food pairings: grilled steaks, slow-cooked beef, osso Bucco.

Reviews and Ratings

Storia Antico 2017 is a value-priced Valpolicella Ripasso under $18 from the Veneto wine region. Savoury, dark and delicious with rich dark fruit, smoky and toasty on the palate from oak ageing. Well-structured and balanced with supple tannins, this is a comfort wine and a perfect pairing to slow-braised beef ribs. "Storia antica" translates to "ancient history." - 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.
