Farina ValpolicellaRipasso Classico Superiore Montecorna 2019 [75cl] Italy

Single Vineyard "Montecorna" Ripasso style Valpolicella Classico Superiore made by leading producer Remo Farina

Ripasso lovers will be pleased with this Montecorna Ripasso Farina Valpolicella Classico Superiore. The best old-school Ripasso-method Valpo I've had in years. A blend made of Molinara, Rondinella, Corvina with an imposing character. The color is garnet. On the nose, ripe fruits, black pepper and plum jam aromas. On the palate, the volcanic-calcareous soil brings nice mineral notes.

Very dark blackish ruby-garnet. Utterly classic Ripasso nose of earthy, brandy-macerated fresh and dried cherries, with a hint of tar and eucalyptus. Dense, full-bodied, yet with lively, almost prickly acidity. Intensely "winey" and dry flavors of dried chokecherries with a hint of prune (in a good way!). Lengthy, minerally finish. Very very nice.
