Although Ripasso is not quite as powerful as Amarone, it possesses many of the same qualities. Referred to by many as a “baby Amarone,” it is suitable for more frequent consumption. Full-boded with ripe fruit aromas and flavors. It is smooth and elegant with a persistent, warm, finish. Enjoy with the traditional cuisine of the Veneto, particularly fully-flavored risottos made with sausage, mushrooms, or even Amarone.
"Some savory cherries, cranberries, tree bark and some dried, spiced strawberries on the nose that follow through to a medium-bodied palate showing generous, bountiful red fruit. Silky and juicy finish." James Suckling, 91 Points
