Reviews of Zenato Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2015
Ruby colour apparently, but it had more intense reflections. Candy aromas. It felt like the typical astringency from Zenato.
Zenato Ripassa Della Valpolicella Superiore 2011
Ruby colour with intense hues. Coffee aromas. It reminded me of licorice.
It was too well-bodied for our meal.
Zenato Ripassa Della Valpolicella Superiore 2010
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.
