Zenato Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripassa 2007

Zenato Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripassa 2007, $28.00-$32.99, 93 points, is a beautiful wine of great depth, but possesses the simplicity of liquid velvet wound in its deep ruby-red. It clings to your glass as it clings to you palate and finishes long on flavors layered and fluted. Okay, make fun of me, but this wine has many "faces" and will please many people, both those who want something special and those who just want something with their meal, but either way, if you are going to spend a hundred dollar or more on your Thanksgiving dinner, then why not display the "mettre en √©vidence des repas" in an elegant bottle with and elegant flavor that will be remembered for a long time?

"Verona in America, un bellissimo vino di fiori e frutta per abbellire il nostro tavolo."

  1. Do you do your own photography? The pictures on your blog are stunning! Love the Zenato and Ripassa style wines in general. Have you tried Allegrini's "La Grola?" Another delicious, affordable red from the Veneto.

  2. Bill, I've been working hard to photographically present "my" wine in the most pleasant manner I can. So, yes I do my own Photos.
    No, I haven't seen The "La Grola", but that'll be one to keep in mind, thank you.

  3. Have to second Bill on this one. Phenomenal photography. Loving the background images you captured in the wine glass and within the bottle. I've been making a list of some of your thanksgiving wine potentials to see if they carry them in Sweden. Anxious to go shopping for some on Monday. Thanks for the review, Den.

  4. Ben, thanks for your kind remarks.
    I tried to comment on the Bolla remarks you made, but as is too often the case i couldn't. So, I'll do it here: Bolla (won't wow anyone)is a ubiquitous wine and not much money, but I wanted to suggest maybe mixing in at least one bottle of the Frescobaldi Nipozzano 2007 Chianti Rufina Riserva. At any rate, I think your going to have fun.
