Product description

Tasting Notes:

Deep ruby-red in color, this wine shows intense aromas of blackberries and black currants underscored by aromas of spice pepper, and a hint of leather. On the palate, it is smooth and viscous with well-balanced acidity and alcohol.


-With the great love of wine and dedication to quality passed on to him by his father, in 1960 Sergio Zenato started up the company that today bears his name. With his total, unflagging commitment to wine, over the years he tried out new systems, developing and improving the vineyards. "The 2010 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ripassa shows clean lines with cherry fruit and dark plum backed by pretty tones of savory spice and cured meat. “Ripassa” was among the first “Ripasso-style” wines made in this area and its fantasy name actually predates the denomination name. Bold darkness and ripe fruit flavors penetrate the finish. Drink 2014-2018."
