2011 Vintage. This is a real mass market ripasso - not particularly rich or long on the palate but certainly no faults. I had it at a restaurant where it was $40 on the wine list and considerably better than equally priced lackluster Chianti. Clear medium minus garnet (rather pale for the genre). Clean, Nice tar and leather notes and done nice wild tammy character. Medium acidity, medium tannins with leather and cherry on the palate. Not complex but very enjoyable

Very earthy on the nose but surprisingly light, plummy and smooth.

Just about everything you want out of a Veneto Red. Full body, leather, dust.
Red meat. Bolognese. Good for just drinking too.

March Madness and Ripasso and rich pasta (not pictured). Great combo. The 2013 iteration of this wine is once again a great value. Richly fruity, with some of those Amarone pruny notes (in a good way), and some gravelly notes in the background. Rich but dry, and with pretty good acidity. Nice balance. Maybe one of the best versions of this I’ve had.

Medium bodied, drinkable cherry notes, but not my favorite.

We liked this wine, would get again. Reliably good vineyard. Leave to breathe for awhile would definitely do it better.
