Monte Zovo, Valpolicella, Ripasso Superiore, Veneto, 2015
(at Decanter tasting suite, 02 Mar 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2024
Herby cherry scents lead to a textural, ripe, almost sweet palate full of vanilla-infused wood, earthy black cherry, fragrant wild strawberry, fleshy mulberry and some menthol. It’s a touch warming, but a great example of the ripasso style. Liquorice and chocolate notes accompanied by a fine line of acidity and salinity on the long finish.
