    Winemaker's Notes:

    The deep ruby red color of the Ripassa, and the intense yet fine aromas come from the mixture of grapes. It is full bodied, harmonic, and velvety on the palate. Recommended with grilled meat dishes, Ripassa is excellent with rabbit casserole. This blockbuster wine is one of Winebow's alltime favorites.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Valpolicella Superiore Ripassa is a sumptuous wine loaded with dark fruit, espresso, licorice and spices. There is nothing particularly subtle in this blockbuster wine, yet all of the elements come together very nicely. A long, resonant finish rounds things out nicely. This is another absolutely delicous wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    This wine ranked 1st of 8—Valpolicellas (3) and Nebbiolos (5)—tasted 3/11 by 14 very experienced members of a group tasting wines blind every month for 34 years. At 21 points against, of a total possible 112 points against, it was statistically very highly significantly better than other wines in the group. I ordered more only of this wine
