Bussola Valpolicella Ripasso 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is named after the estate that Tommaso purchased in 2002. With this purchase, he finally has enough vineyard land to supply all his grape needs. He crafted this new wine be the bridge between the normale range and the elite TB wines. Ca di Laito is a 100% ripasso comprised of the traditional Valpolicella blend that is aged in used barrels. It's deep and dark, with tremendous fruit density.

The wine is a bright ruby color in the glass, with just the faintest hint of amber along the edges. The nose is quite nice, with earthy notes of cedar, leather and fresh herbs over concentrated fruit notes of ripe plum and raisin. The taste is sublime, with a burst of sweet cherry and anise at the outset, which transitions to some espresso and white pepper notes midpalate. The tannins are well integrated and nicely structured, supporting a long, velvety dry finish.
