The 2018 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso is a force to be reckoned with. Here I’m finding an intense and savory display, as aromas of plum sauce and red currants give way to balsamic spice, smoky minerals and purple-tinged florals. It’s velvety with medium-bodied textures, ushering in ripe blackberry fruit, as cooling minerals and herbal tones add further lift. Hints of baker’s chocolate and medicinal cherry linger, along with residual acids that frame the expression perfectly. Only just shy of an Amarone in depth, the 2018 Ripasso is flat-out stunning.
