WineDiva's Review

Voluptuous, expressive, lengthy.

Made in a traditional, regional style of re-fermenting grapes from already made Amarone in order to lend a richness and concentration to a second wine. In this case the Tomassi "Ripasso".
The aromas are as expected, plush. Dried cherries, prune, vanilla, sweet coffee, baking spices and saddle leather, licorice, balsamic and kirsch. The palate is also generous but not ponderous; good fruit expression, coffee, baking spices, vanilla and cocoa flavours dominate. Beautifully balanced, lengthy and wonderful to drink.
Pair with rich slow roasted meat dishes or finish with strong, hard cheeses or dark chocolate.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary
