2010 Tommasi Valpolicella Ripasso (Previously $25)
Jammy, rich, deliciously sweet fruit yet finishes dry and pleasantly bitter. Fragrant, lifted, pretty lengthy too.
Wine & Spirits
Warm ripe cherry fruit along with some rustic volatility makes this a peppery, pleasantly sweet red. For red meat off the grill.
This expression is genuine and frank without being heavy or overextracted. It presents a fine, polished texture, with bright endnotes of black cherry, cassis, leather and Spanish cedar.
Subtle black cherry, boysenberry, pekoe tea leaf and dried thyme are structured by tangy acidity and supple tannins, with aromatic ground spices and tea rose notes on the finish. Drink now through 2014.
