Intense ruby red, with a nose that recalls spicy black pepper and raisin, and a palate that is intense and spicy, with lots of sweet red cherry flavors. Exquisite with a piece of aged Gorgonzola cheese, perfectly paired with white and red meats, and game.
"Tommasi's elegant Ripasso represents an alternative to many of the more densely extracted and exaggerated wines you will find in this category. Aromas include cherry and spice and the wine shows a point of ripe, sweet fruit on the close."
"Dark ruby. Ripe black fruits, tobacco and roasted coffee on the nose, with a floral quality for added freshness. Rich and round, with creamy-smooth fruit flavors that are quite ripe without being over the top. Seems a touch hollow in the mid-palate, but this wine should show more flesh with food."
