Tommasi Viticoltori "Ripasso" Valpolicella 2004
In the glass, the wine is a nice medium garnet colour. The nose suggests dusty raisinated fruit. The palate provides cherry fruit and a wonderful barnyardy flavour that gives the fruit tremendous depth. The wine generally has fantastic concentration. The tannins are very moderate and well balanced. What can I say, I love this wine and it is the best value wine I’ve had in a long time. I am greatly looking forward to the wine festival coming up at the end of february and especially its focus on Italy. And if this wine is of any indication, we are all up for a treat.
Anyhow, buy this wine and enjoy it at your earliest convenience: it is superb value.
