Press Quotes

Waitrose Valpolicella Ripasso Classico 2018 "Lovely fruit here: juicy cherries and berries with nice balance and a spicy flourish at the end. Very more-ish." Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com, 3 November 2020 75cl

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! "
