Cecilia Beretta Valpolicella "Ripasso" Superiore 2021


Pretty garnet hue with aromas with floral notes, touches citrusy red fruit, sweet cherry above the rim.         

Palate--Juicy, mouth watering structure with spicy fresh fruit and a nice food friendly structure. Finishes fairly quick but all around a winner.

I paid $12 for this very nice Valpolicella.  Ripasso is a method of wine making wherein grapes that have been semi-dried are used in making a wine called "Amarone" and is pricey and delicious.  Those grapes once used are then used again to make "Ripasso."  They are distinctive, and some of my favorite Italian wines.  

You really should seek some of the se out and give them a try. They are easy to like and are very food friendly so raise a glass!
