Valpolicella Ripasso 2011 Classico Superiore DOC

The 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore opens to earthy tones and spice, followed by dried fruit, mocha and pressed rose. It shows good intensity and a higher degree of sophistication than you would expect at this attractive price point. After the blend is made (70% Corvina and Corvinone with 30% Rondinella), the wine sees up to 12 months in tonneaux followed by a period in botte grande. Drink 2013-2018. – 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
