Zenato Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore Ripassa 2017
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
Deep ruby-red in color, this wine shows intense aromas of blackberries and black currants underscored by aromas of spice pepper, and a hint 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.
A rich, medium- to full-bodied red with a deep toasty layer of smoke, brioche, coffee and spice layered with abundant dried cherry, red licorice and roasted fig flavors. It's well-integrated, with sculpted tannins emerging to firm the long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2027. 30,000 cases made, 7,000 cases imported.
