4 /5

Il Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore di Zenato è uno dei rossi veneti per eccellenza, conosciuto in tutto il mondo per la particolare tecnica di vinificazione che lo avvicina moltissimo a quella densa complessità del fratello maggiore Amarone. Si compone del tradizionale blend di Corvina, presente all'85%, Rondinella, nella quota del 10% e Oseleta, al 5%. Al termine della normale vinificazione in acciaio, il Valpolicella Ripasso sosta sulle vinacce provenienti dall'Amarone per un periodo di circa una settimana. Matura, in seguito, per 18 mesi in tonneaux e per 6 mesi in bottiglia. Alla vista è rosso rubino scuro, denso. Il ventaglio aromatico che si spalanca al naso coinvolge in ricordi fragola, ciliegia, frutti rossi e una scia di frutta secca. Incede, in bocca, in modo vellutato e si afferma con la solidità di una struttura piena e morbida. Ottimo con le carni rosse e i formaggi stagionati. Da provare con un controfiletto di manzo ai ferri su crema di zola e noci.

4/5

I didn't pair it with anything. You have to drink it with a good friend.
Ruby colour apparently, but it had more intense reflections. Candy aromas. It felt like the typical astringency from Zenato.

It is my parents favorite wine.
Ruby colour with intense hues. Coffee aromas. It reminded me of licorice.
It was too well-bodied for our meal.

It's a red I like to drink when I'm alone.
A very successful cherry colour. Highlight the aromas of tobacco. The flavours of Ripassa Della Valpolicella Superiore were quite well compensated.
We had it while we waited for the meal, with appetizers.
