    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 concentrated power of air-dried grapes creates an equilibrium between the wine's dense black fruit and floral scents, from rose to violet. Chunky tannins provide a slow melt to the finihs, like bittersweet chocolate, while the fruit maintains its briskness and direction. Built to age.

    The name "Ripassa" refers to the unique winemaking technique, ripasso, in which the wine undergoes a double fermentation for increased concentration and density. This is bold, powerful and tightly packed with cherry and exotic spice aromas.

    Nice wine with good structure. Had discernable characteristics of an Amarone-style. A decent drink. However, for my taste the overall drinking experience was too restrained and I felt the wine was a touch lite.
