Cesari Valpolicella Superiore Mara Ripasso 2014
Although Ripasso is not quite as powerful as Amarone, it possesses many of the same qualities. Referred to by many as a "baby Amarone," it is suitable for more frequent consumption. Full-boded with ripe fruit aromas and ﬂavors. It is smooth and elegant with a persistent, warm, finish. Enjoy with the traditional cuisine of the Veneto, particularly fully-ﬂavored risottos made with sausage, mushrooms, or even Amarone.
