Fasoli Gino

La Corte del Pozzo Valpolicella Ripasso Corvina Blend

Very full in body, with fruit forward flavor. You can taste the layers evolve from spices and plums with a velvet mouth feel to a slightly cherry finish. Absolutely phenomenal! — a day ago

Romano Dal Forno

Valpolicella Superiore Corvina Blend 2013

2013: Classic Vallpolicella, a “half Amarone” ripasso. Dense, inky, mouth-coating, full-bodied without too much sweetness and with some barnyard funk. I only wish it had a bit more grip: was more enjoyable early on when the tannins were more evident. Could be a function of the good-but-not-great vintage, but I slightly prefer Quintarelli for this kind of pocket change ($95, VR). — 7 days ago

Campolieti Valpolicella Ripasso Corvina Blend 2019

Enjoyed this wine. Very complex. Lots of raspberry, vanilla, and chocolate. Other folks also tasted/smelled licorice but I hate anise so there wasn’t enough for me to be offended. Had with amatriciana. Would love to have again. — a month ago

Excellent tasting at Tommaso Bussola. I’m rating the tasting in general. Incredible wines from a winery in expansion! The Riserva 2011 was sublime!

Domini Veneti

La Casetta Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend

Fruit forward, yet not too jammy. Notes of leather and tobacco, with strawberry potpourri. Nose is quite accurate. Lovely in Venice. — 10 days ago

This Valpolicella Ripasso had plenty of fruit backed with nice acidity. We didn’t visit this winery but I will definitely seek out their wines
