2010 Tommasi Valpolicella Ripasso

SKU #1114256 Jancis Robinson

 Jammy, rich, deliciously sweet fruit yet finishes dry and pleasantly bitter. Fragrant, lifted, pretty lengthy too.  (6/ 2012)

Wine & Spirits

 Warm ripe cherry fruit along with some rustic volatility makes this a peppery, pleasantly sweet red. For red meat off the grill.  (8/ 2012)

Wine Enthusiast

 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.  (11/ 2012)

Wine Spectator

 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.  (8/ 2012)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
