Bertani Villa Novare DOC 2007 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripassa, $6.99-$20.99, 88 points, poured a deep ruby trending orange to brick red at the clear wine ring and leggy glass bowl.
Aromas of plum wine, raisins, and black olives with a hint of roses were quite good.
Near full-bodied with good acidity and smooth easy tannins carried flavors reflective of the aromas plus a bit of black licorice.
A long spicy finish added to the trailing palate plus a whisper of coriander and the 13.5% alcohol.
For those that like this style of wine, this is a great value (QPR).
Pair with traditional Italian cuisine.
