Tezza, DOC Valpolicella Ripasso Valpantena Superiore 2018Regular price €25.00
87/100 BRONZE at Decanter World Wine Awards 2021
The full, smooth and generous style of ripasso wines offers some of the intensity of Amarone, but at a much lower price and with more moderate alcoholic strength.
This example from the Tezza family is packed with flavour. It combines bramble, currant and cherry fruit with smoky, spicy hints of tobacco and leather in a robust dry red with firm, shaping but balanced tannins.
Although it's a hearty wine, it's a good companion for all kinds of food from sausages and grills to steak or mature cheeses.
