RIPASSO VALPOLICELLA D.O.C.
Deep ruby red colour with good concentration.
Plump red fruit combines well with sweet spices, then giving way to delicately spiced herbs.
Full and satisfying. The harmonious balance struck by an excellent structure and vibrant acidity renders this wine both smooth and vivacious on the palate.
