The Solane Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore is a wine strongly linked to the territory and therefore of great character. It has a beautiful and intense ruby ​color; the typical, clean and complex scent has intense hints of fresh red fruit and maraschino jam, wrapped in hints of vanilla. The taste is warm and frank, balanced, with an elegant spicy and toasted bottom. It has a strong personality thanks to the distinct elegance and subtlety of perfumes, to the flavor and persistence in the mouth. Great and pleasant when young, it improves over time.

My technical sheet states that the residual sugar in the 2016 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso Solane is five grams per liter, and you almost taste it, but not in an obvious manner. This is a blend of 80% Corvina and 20% Rondinella that results in an ample and generous presentation of dried plum and cherry followed by spice, tar and sweet tobacco. An ample 180,000 bottles were made, and at this price point, you can buy this wine by the case for informal nights spent in front of the TV set with a sliced baguette and a tray of cold cuts.
