Sept 28, 2019. J2’s 5th bonus year celebration. TW Concierge offering April 2017. Purchased this and the Amarone. This is s solid Ripasso. Tart cherries, of course but not overpowering. Smooth, no pepper, hint of chocolate. 70% Corvina, 30% Rondinella. I believe Villa Cavarena is an Allegrini family label, from their Co-op? Definitely Allegrini quality and for <$20/bottle, what’s not to like???

Tropical fruit and grapefruit on nose. Soft start to a light spice and bitter almond finish. Super tasty. High acid. Slightly dry and soft warmth of alcohol in chest. Another reliable ripasso.

Starts off ripe and lush, ends with bitter almond that I associate with wines of this region. Pairing with pasta and red sauce improved the finish. Also good with aged cheeses!
