Solane Santi Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso 2006 wine review by (PB)
Another Trader Joe's bargain which did not pay off for the travel and expense as it was gone on a return visit.
Purple cranberry jelly hue with bright cherry, pipe tobacco aromas and nice fruit.
Palate--Sweet, integrated fruit with some intensity along with baked bread, candy berry flavors and a finish that lasts. Good structure with a spice rear, will drink well for several years.
A Ripasso at this price ($15) is ridiculous but this is a good one. I tried to get more but someone else also recognized a bargain when they saw it. Raise a glass if you can.
