Cantina di Negrar Valpolicella Ripasso is a serious red at a "not so serious red" price point. On the nose - earthy, herbaceous notes balanced with dark plums. Notes of dark red cherries from the Ripasso method shine through, and are balanced with dark chocolate-y and mocha from time spent in oak barrels. Despite the deep intense notes there is a freshness from the fruit and a balanced acidity, making this a great food wine!
