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: 13.0%

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

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.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
89 Points

"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."
