Zenato Corvina Blend Valpolicella Ripassa 2005
Ruby-red in color with deep spice and dried fruit aromas. This is one of the most exciting wines on the market, offering explosive flavors of dried black cherry, cassis, truffles, chocolate fudge and tar. Luscious and complex, with a lingering finish, this wine is recommended with hearty, roasted meats, game and mature cheeses.
Bursting with berry flavors. Rich plum and dry. Great tanins. Well structured.
Always killer. Super juicy on the frontend, fading into a nice, dry finish. Rich strawberry. It has rocked it with pasta just as easily as it rocked it with Batali pizza. Most recently had the '04.
Sarjassamme pehmeitä perjantaiviinejä. Vaikkakin nautittu jo torstaina. Erinomainen vuohenjuustosalaatin kera.
Rich, full body bursting with blackberry and raspberry fruit flavors, smooth texture.
Good representative Ripassa style. Extracted and rich - full body. Earlier vintages better made and more affordable.
A luscious purple-red wine that feels like velvet in your mouth. Rich, red fruit flavors of cherry and berry with a bit of spice. Some more aging would probably subdue the sweet, fruit flavor and bring out more smoothness in the tannins.
A great buy!!! Ripe black cherries over a softly delivered richness.

Wine Tasting NotesDeep ruby red, it offers rich, elegant, lingering scents; it is crisp and dry in the mouth, well structured, with a lovely, velvety texture.
