Its intense ruby red colour, illuminated by vibrant garnet reflections, gives an indication of the refined taste profile of this wine. It conquers the taster with delightful scents of small, ripe red fruits, which give way to elegant floral notes of violets and red roses, as well as intriguing spicy tones of nutmeg, black pepper and cloves. It offers a lithe entry onto the palate, in which the warm, alcoholic sensations are amply counterpointed by soft tannins, great freshness and a satisfying tanginess that invite you to take another sip. The floral sensations return on the fine, clean finish.
Serving suggestions: this wine, which is full-bodied yet supple, can be matched with a whole host of dishes. Delicious with a juicy barbecued rib steak or cold roast beef, our Valpolicella Ripasso also makes an elegant foil for more complex dishes like stews, even game-based ones.
