Solane Santi Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2007 wine review by (PB)
This ripasso is a medium garnet hue with a bouquet of unique aromas of dried cherries and a touch of stink like that of some pinot noirs. Herbal notes of italian spices with earthy and slight milk chocolate notes under it all.
Palate--Plush, silky tannins and tasty fruit with smoke and strawberry/cranberry/raspberry fruit with a rather thin finish.
For a $14 ripasso this is a nice wine and great with any kind of tomato based pasta's and garlic bread. Raise a glass!
