Secco-Bertani 2005 Volpolicella Valpantena Ripasso wine review by (PB)
Medium garnet with nice dried cherry aromas;
palate--nice pie cherry front, well made but needs to breath...
After some air: Aromas of grapefruit and earthy notes.
Palate: Same as above finishing with dried red fruit.
This was $15 and it was "okay" but certainly nothing memorable. On the other hand I recently reviewed the Zenato Ripasso (same grape etc.) and it was a marvelous wine but it also cost nearly twice as much.
My advice--splurge and buy the Zenato--it is worth the difference! Raise a glass.
