Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Rich fruity noses and a perfect reply on the palate. Softer acids and an invisible sweetness makes it the wine of Italy closest to New World wines if you accept my broad generalization.
Tezza Ma Roat 2015 is a full-bodied, juicy Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore from the Veneto wine region, and under $20 as well. "Ma Roat" translate to red moon in the local dialect. Pair this one with a meat pasta and tomato dish. - Community Wine Reviews
