The Oddbins Take

Oh Mamma! What a smooth one this is. Get ready for some of the most over-worked wine adjectives in town hurtling their way towards you, because these are the only way to get across to you the sheer loveliness of this wine: soft, silky, slightly-sweet-seeming and sumptuous. This is about as round and as smooth a red as anything South America could ever send over, but with a subtle medium-bodied restraint that hallmarks this Latino lover as authentic Italiana.

'Ripasso' refers to technique developed in the Veneto in the 1960s, whereby a newly-fermented Valpolicella wine is ‘repassed’ or re-fermented on the leftover skins of the semi-dried grapes used in the production of Amarone. This process intensifies the body, alcohol, colour and flavour of the young wine, elevating it above simpler Valpolicella DOC wines.

    This bottle of red is so totally stylish to look at that we were utterly suspicious. But what did we find when we cracked it open? Only the most sumptuous ripasso style (that's the Amarone technique if you're interested) red we've had in a while for this kind of money. Just shows, it's possible to be beautiful on the inside and the outside.
