Tedeschi, Capitel San Rocco, Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2019
(at Decanter's Tasting Suite, London, 30 Aug 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2026
This Ripasso from the Maternigo estate combines bold red and black fruit aromas with a touch of menthol. Intense, weighty and textured in the mouth, its ripe coulis-esque red fruits showcase the ripasso style with wonderful deftness, finishing with a slightly bitter, tarry note alongside plenty of freshness.

Always nice to revisit the elegance of Tedeschi's Ripasso, with its vibrant red fruit, acid lift, and alcohol in perfect balance. The tannins are angular, and pleasantly firm. Great width on the mid-palate and linear finish. Lingering cherry, strawberry jam and plum notes.
