Tasting Notes: The Veneto region is home to a huge assortment of amazing Italian wines that could happily find their way into anybody’s collection. But amongst them all, Valpolicella may stand at the top of the mountain. This gorgeous red wine may be the most representative of the region’s terroir, leading to it becoming one of the most popular Italian wines both domestically and abroad. A dry and full-bodied wine, the Riondo Valpolicella Ripasso stands out from its peers thanks to its complexity. Riondo has dedicated itself to producing a product that is truly representative of the Corvina, Rondinella, and Corvinone grapes used to make it, leading to a wine that encourages exploration at every turn. The bouquet offers notes of cherry and other red fruits, with various spices present both to complement and temper the sweeter flavours. The wine itself is made using a carefully selected batch of grapes, with only the best from the Collis collective finding their way into the bottle. Upon tasting, you’ll find your senses awash in this glorious collection of flavours. This is not a wine to take lightly. Instead, true appreciation for the perfect harmony within only comes from taking your time and allowing your tongue to explore it. And as a wine with an ageing potential of up to 15 years, the Riondo Valpolicella Ripasso can provide even more joy to those who are willing to wait a little longer before exploring its full potential.
