Vintage 2014 / I never forget my visit to the ‘Bure Alto’ vineyard, because I was impressed how high the vines were tied and grown. It’s an amazing site. This wine has a compelling smell: warm, spices, coffee, mocca and even chocolate. Smooth drinking with deer goulash and stewed bell pepper. #valpolicella #ripasso

A few too many aldehydic qualities, but this ripasso has great aromatics and a nice tannin structure. Not bad for the price.

2e bon vin de cette série de souper de pâtes noël. Doit goûter à nouveau, goût particulier du bon côté ! Assez doux et fruité, parfait pour des pâtes. Bu en bonne compagnie dans les fêtes. Plus dispendieux, dans cellier.

It takes at least 2 hours to taste this wine. That’s ripasso making me feel matured black fruits flavor. Also tanning and spicy. @1500/1050, Trust - XH, 190103-190129

Your typical ripasso. It’s good... but nothing special.
