Zenato Valpolicella Superiore Ripassa 2015
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ripassa shows black fruit and plum with chalky limestone notes that add a touch of dryness to the otherwise soft and sweet fruit profile delivered here. In terms of Ripasso (named Ripassa here), this expression does show nice darkness and richness that tastes even more pronounced in this very warm and sunny vintage. Pair this wine with your favorite barbecued meats.
Wine SpectatorThis elegant red is well-balanced, layering light, creamy tannins and flavors of plumped cherry, anise and orange peel in a medium-bodied frame. A hint of graphite-laced mineral lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
