Deep ruby-red in color, this wine shows intense aromas of blackberries and black currents underscored by aromas of spice pepper, and a hunt of leather. On the palate, it is smooth and viscous with well-balanced acidity and alcohol.
Pair this wine with risotto, Lyonnaise sauces, beef negimaki, and rabbit ragu.
"Aromas of dried fruits, blueberries and flowers. Full body, silky tannins and a friuty, refined finish. Very fine indeed. Delicious now."
"The 2010 Valpolicella Superiore Ripassa is simply beautiful. Freshly cut flowers, dark red berries and a gentle hint of spice caress the palate in a subtle, layered wine loaded with personality and class. This is a great introduction to the wines of Zenato. Best of all, the 2010 is a fabulous value."
