Benoit Valérie Calvet, The Exquisite Collection Valpolicella Ripasso 2014
Lovely ripe yet tart cherry and juicy plum fruit combines with sweet baking spices, vanilla and almond essence, with a rustic yet pleasant earthy tone. The palate is fresh, with decent weight of fruit, balancing acidity and good grip from the tannins. A great example of the ripasso style at a very affordable price.
