Bertani Valpolicella Ripasso 2016
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
On the nose it has a very clean and intense aroma of ripe red fruit with hints of dark fruit, such as bramble, blackcurrant and ripe cherry. It is velvety and well balanced, full and round while maintaining a lively and intense grip, with a sapid aftertaste. This dense Ripasso can be easily matched with different Italian dishes: flavorsome pasta and rice dishes such as risotto with porcini mushrooms, grilled and roast meat and medium-matured cheeses.
Light, supple tannins edge the flavors of crushed black cherry, fig cake and bay leaf in this balanced, medium-bodied red. A hint of graphite lingers on the fresh finish. Drink now through 2023. 18,000 cases made, 1,120 cases imported.
