Corte Zovo Sa’ Solin Ripasso Della Valpolicella 2004

This DOC bottle comes all the way from the birthplace of ripasso, Veneto, Italy.  It’s a tannic, medium to full bodied wine that would go very well with heavy beef dishes.
Hats off any winemaker that can achieve such smoothness while having an alcohol content of 14.5%, learn from my experience…drink slowly.  The price jump of 2 dollars from the 2003 vintage was sad to see, in Ontario: c’est la vie.
