Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

30% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 10% Molinara, Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara, Dindarella, Sangiovese.

Its color is a strong, ruby red; clear and transparent. Its bouquet is ample and complex with notes of cherry, raspberry and red currant that give freshness to the wine. The wine is fruity, well-balanced and well-structured. Alcohol and acidity are in good harmony. The wine is warm and round. The aftertaste confirms the character of the bouquet. This wine has a long-lasting and persistent flavor. Suited for aging (six-to-eight years).

Serve with red meat, game and cheeses at 61°-64°F.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors mix with himts of rose petal, pekoe tea and dried herbs in this velvety red, which balances a pleasant sappy quality with tangy acidity, showing chewing tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 1,200 cases imported."
90 Points

"The 2008 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Capitel San Rocco possesses a touch more sweetness and roundness than the Capitel dei Nicalo tasted alongside it. Fragrant dark cherries, tobacco, earthiness and rosemary are some of the nuances that linger on the close. The finish retains an element of vibrancy and freshness that is quite attractive. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014."
90 Points

"Tedeschi presents a beautifully balanced Ripasso with a successful contrast between elegance and power. The aromas here recall mature fruit, spice, leather and Spanish cedar and the wine offers a long, thick and soft finish. "
