Ripasso (or 're-passing') involves fermenting Valpolicella a second time on dried Amarone skins. This imparts a greater degree of colour, body, aroma and flavour to the final wine. Remo Farina is one of the most prominent producers of this popular style, offering great value across their line. Their Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore is a perennial customer favourite, loved for its consistent quality and reliably articulated dark fruit, clove and pepper spice tones. Balance and structure are also hallmarks of this wine. Enjoy with grilled lamb.
Tasting Note: Juicy, robust and vibrant Italian red wine: a terrific wine especially at this price point. Aromas of black fleshy ripe blackberries, black plums and some dark spice. Almost reminds me of Californian Zinfandel but with a darker undertone. Perfect for grilled meats and barbecue. Drink: 2017-2021. Score - 91. (Natalie MacLean, nataliemaclean.com, April 24, 2017)
