Expert reviews

"Ripasso is a wonderful style of wine of depth and character that is made using some of the dried grapes that make Amarone wines so intense and rich. This is a fine example of the style, made in partnership with Fratelli Recchia, a family firm founded in 1906. Despite the power there's also a freshness and elegance that make this supremely drinkable! "

Mushroom Risotto with Waitrose Ripasso di Valpoicella Classico Superiore

Mushroom risotto

This wine has a lovely velvety texture that matches the richer texture of a well-made risotto. The vibrant flavours of Ripasso, such as plums, liquorice and subtle chocolate notes, blend well with the earthy mushroom flavours of the risotto. Using a combination of oyster, shitake and porcini mushrooms. brings more depth and character to this dish. Finish with the customary shaved Parmigiano.
