Santi Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso Solane 2010
Wine SpectatorDry and tangy, showing a sweet, smoky base note to flavors of sun-dried cherry, cranberry and strawberry fruit, with notes of dried mint and spice and a lightly chewy finish. Drink now through 2016.
Wine EnthusiastTight and aromatically intense, this delivers layers of ripe fruit, prune, black pepper, blackberry jelly and cinnamon. Those beautiful tones are followed by soft, velvety tannins.
