Zenato Corvina Blend Valpolicella Superiore Ripassa 2010

External Review by The Wine Buyer:

Ruby-red in color tending toward garnet as the wine matures. Dry and robust on the palate with an excellent, velvety texture, this wine offers fleshy aromas of wild berries, currant, black cherry and spice, framed by intriguing hints of chocolate.
