Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore

Villa San Carlo

This red wine is ruby red in color with light garnet hues. Fine aromas of fragrant red fruits of blackberry, cranberry and currant blends are followed by a rich floral hint of red rose and a gentle spice flavor. The wine has a rounded mouthfeel- textured. It is a pleasant fully-bodied wine with excellent freshness  and good balanced  tannins.

Food Pairing   Ripasso wines can be served with a number of dishes such as risotto and hearty pasta dishes. But they are at their best when paired with hearty dishes like roasted veal or lamb or braised or barbequed red meats like steak, sausage and game. Ripasso also goes well with aged cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Best served at a temperature of   16˚C > 18˚C
14% ABV
