Dark ruby-red color. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, black cherries and plums with hints of cocoa, vanilla and tobacco. Warm, persistent flavors, velvety and harmonious.
-“If this is not Amarone, then it is a lying wine!” This was the exclamation of an experienced sommelier, when he tasted our first Ripasso wine in 2000, an incident which gave birth to the name of our wine, “Il Bugiardo,” or “the liar.” “A fresh, medium-bodied red, with a skein of zesty spice unraveling through the plump mix of black cherry and plum fruit. Hints of tar, black licorice and grilled herb linger on the chewy finish. Drink now through 2020.”
