Dried grapes give this wine bold flavor with a nice strong finish. Better when decanted and fully opened. Spice notes.

Light ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose, blueberries, red currants, plums, vegetables, wood, earth, wet leaves, alcohol, coffee, licorice, barnyard, spices and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, chocolates, oak, light vanilla, red candy, green vegetables, herbs, earth, dark roasted coffee, leather, graphite and peppercorn.

Medium finish with very soft tannins and tart raspberries.

This is a nice Ripasso with nice complexity, but itโ€™s not balanced any longer. I think I missed it by a year or so. However, it is still enjoyable with hard cheeses.

Soft mouth feel and spicy with a kick at the ending.

Needs 30 minutes to open up.

Aged for 8 months in Oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

A Trader Joe's special. Bright red fruits (cherries especially). A bit acidic, but overall pretty decent for the price point. Perhaps some Vacuuvin time will mellow the sharpness.

Short finish and a little high in acid, but still a delicious full bodied Ripasso for $10!
