External Reviews for Corte Sant' Alda Valpolicella Ripasso
From one of our favorite Amarone producers comes this stellar ''baby'' Amarone known simply as Valpolicella. A spicey red wine with fleshy dark berries, cherry wood and a note of cedar. Medium-bodied and mineraled on the finish and ideal with rich fare.
The 2007 Valpolicella Ca'Fiui is an absolutely beautiful, perfumed wine from Veneto. Silky tannins frame a core of red raspberries all the way through to the long finish. This, too, is an elegant and refined wine, especially at this level.
