Le Poiane 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore DOC

The 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore Le Poiane shows added intensity and focus – just a hair – when compared to the base Ripasso. The blend is virtually the same (Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella) and the oak regime sees barrique first followed by botte grande later. Dried prune, fig, cola, cedar and black espresso grinds come to mind. Drink 2013-2019. – Monica Larner (12/15/2013)

Since 2008, Banfi Vintners was appointed Bolla’s exclusive importer for the United States and considerable investments were made. Bolla’s secret weapon is Director and Winemaker Christian Scrinzi, a notoriously hard worker, who has dedicated himself to turning the brand around. Every year I taste his wines, I notice slight increments in improved quality despite the large volume produced. – Monica Larner
