Villa Girardi Bure Alto Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2015
Though not without size and power, this is crafted to reflect a relatively lighter style of Ripasso. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth, and the flavours are generous and complex. Touches of raisinated fruit mix wonderfully with suggestions of blueberry pie, chocolate, cherry, leather and a dash of licorice. Superb acidity provides great lift, giving it that lighter feel. A polished wine that will be great with roast turkey, risotto or lamb stew, but that has the substance to evolve. Consider waiting on this for a year or two more. (Vintages panel, Sept. 2017)
