My first Ripasso!!! Wow!!! Ruby colored with wood and cherry aromas. This is a big bold wine that is very smooth. It’s boldness reminds me of a Cabernet Sauvignon. Cherry, wood, and plenty of spice notes with a fairly long finish. Went well with our Leg of Lamb! — 2 months ago
It's a great, refreshing Sangiovese. If you like chianti, you'll love this. It's packed with flavor, but it's light and easy drinking and fruity with enough spice and herbs to balance it. I feel like I could take wine from the porch to the dining table to the couch.
Color: A dark clear Ruby color that goes kinda purple in color
Aroma: It's a strong fruity forward aroma that I easily smelled through my N95 mask (probably a knock off). It's a delicious and enticing aroma. I get dark fruits like sour cherry, some plum, and subtle nutty notes. It has a fruit forward aroma with some juiciness. It's a very inviting aroma.
Taste: Delicious. Reminds me od chianti which makes sense since many chiantis are Sangiovese. It's light and savory with some spice and herbs like parsley. It's finishes smooth with a slightly lingering finish that dusts the tongue and coats the mouth. There's plum flavours, some cherry, some spiciness, some herbaceous parsley Ness. It has good acid and low tannins. — 5 months ago
Beautiful in 16 and a great time to start digging into 16 Langhe Nebs. Floral and spice jump out of the glass. Some nice cherry as well. Just a glorious nose. But that palate drinks like a baby Barolo. This is elite Langhe Nebbiolo that is showing out of its mind. It’s so soft and lush yet deep and flavorful. Even some elegant. Deep fleshy fruit and velvety sweet tannins. Absurdly good. Great concentration and freshness. Rock star. — 3 months ago

I think I mislabeled but can’t find anything closer!
Chianti is hit or miss for me and this one is more a hit. — 5 months ago

Dry, almonds, medium bodied, a little citrus, hint of honey, stones, acidic but not too much… delicious. — 4 months ago
Good acid for a grape variety that gets me curious
A bit of maceration of the skin that gives it the extra bit of colour
Just a touch too tannic that perhaps wasn't needed considering the good freshness
Still ok, but less enjoyable than the Angelina drank the same night. — 7 months ago
