JAMES SUCKLING PRÄMIERT DEN NEUEN JAHRGANG DES RIPASSO 2021
Unser Ripasso della Valpolicella Classico 2021 wurde von James Suckling mit 92 Punkten prämiert!
„All material used across this succinct range is from the Classico DOCG. Ripasso is to ameliorate Valpolicella with weight, albeit, to ‚rediscover‘ the marrow of Valpolicella in doing so. Legally, one can pass twice across the Amarone skins. At this address, the passing is a single one only to retain freshness and to avoid volatility. Pungent notes of mountain herb, dried fennel and mint, with a core of just-ripe-enough strawberry, loganberry and sour red berries popping long across the mouth. Great energy here, with a swathe of dried tobacco tannins to compress, direct and drive the finish. 2021 is among the best vintages of the last few decades. Mid- weighted, effortless and a dangerous proposition as one glass moves swiftly to an empty bottle. Drink or hold.“
