Bussola Valpolicella Ripasso 2008

Member Review by jtryka:

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.
