2007 Corte Giara Ripasso Valpolicella

SKU #1052773

According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Valpolicella Ripasso offers up dark plums, chocolate and spices in a soft-textured style with a nice sense of inner sweetness. The wine is already somewhat forward in its aromas and flavors, so ideally it is best enjoyed over the near term. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011. Corte Giara is a label owned by the Allegrini family. The wines are made from vineyards under long-term lease." (08/09)

Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
