The 2011 Valpolicella is light, brilliant ruby red in color with a bouquet of intense red fruits notes such as currant, strawberry and black cherry. On the palate the wine is medium in body but with a surprisingly enveloping mature berry flavor with hints of dried figs, coffee notes and cocoa powder. It is silky with sweet/tart fruit ripe fruit flavor dense, ripe and lush mature berries. Excellent with pasta dishes, roasted red and white meats (especially lamb and duck) gorgonzola cheese and radicchio dishes.

Wine AdvocateMonica Larner Issue Date 31st May 2017 Source Interim End of May, The Wine Advocate The 2011 Valpolicella Classico Ripasso Superiore is a dark and savory red wine. It opens to an inky, dense appearance with dark garnet highlights. The wine presents an openly sweet element with cherry marmalade, cinnamon and dried prune. Plump and rich in terms of mouthfeel, this wine offers a pleasant sense of simplicity and basic sweetness.
