Black raspberries, sweet violets, tobacco and hints of licorice form a dazzling bouquet on the 2016 Ripassa. This is silky-smooth, with a dark fruit persona. It’s persistent and balanced, as hints of nuanced tannins and tart wild berries create a slightly grippy finale. $22.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2021)

Green vine notes. Lots of acidity. Not what I expected but not horrible.

Very young tasting and not subtle or layered. I’m gonna give this a few years. Needs to be decanted, maybe for a couple of hours

Bright, intriguing and warm medium body wine. Taste full of dried plum, red raspberry, liquorice and tabacco notes. Highly recommend with roasted duck breast and aged cheese.
