Ripasso lovers will be pleased with this Montecorna Ripasso Farina Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2009. 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.
