CARATTERISTICHE DEL VINO: Valpolicella Ripasso is a deep ruby red wine. The nose is intense, clean and elegant, with hints of cherry liqueur and chocolate.
On the palate, it is immediately sumptuous, robust, and full-bodied but rounded and soft and bursting with fruit -reminiscent of the cherry and chocolate found on the nose – and highly satisfying tannins. In the mouth, scents of tobacco, licorice and vanilla.
