Iā€™m really digging Ripasso lately and this is a very nice one. Balanced, a little fruity, semi-dry but very smooth. Would be an excellent house red.

Good quality and texture. Elegant, deeply flavored. Bouquet of forest floor, hint of tar, black berry fruit and just a hint of gaminess. Silky texture, quite dry and long finish

Always pleased with Ripassos. Don't think I've ever had a bad one. This one was very nice, easy to drink, big flavors. Would love to have again

Hell ya ripassos. I don't think I've ever had one. Strange to find out spent grape skins add such dry decadence. Because this wine is dry but rife with blackberries, black cherries and chocolate. Tannins are slight which is funny considering it was soaked on skins. But I guess because they were spent it is a different story. The finish lingers on and on and I am now so curious to try more ripassos.

Love #Ripasso. This has great bang for the buck.

Dark red, oily color & texture, medium bodied. Some browning at the edge. Dumb at first opening to dry, consistent tannins, marachino cherry with faint herbs.

Opens nicely with lively tannin, fine acidity giving it an edge.

Coming back to this wine a year and a half after I first rated it...still love it. Nice hints of fruit and exceptionally drinkable. Will continue to stock it as a house red
