REVIEW: Tenuta Sant’ Antonio Monti Garbi Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2006

January 26th, 2010 by Jeff

Price:   ~$21.00

Nose:

Roated meats, raspberries and red licorice

Palate:

Full bodied. above average acidity and smooth, ripe tannin.  Intense and up front fruit of plum, blackberry and black cherry.

Synposis:

This is rich and intense but it finishes light on it’s feet…like a long barefoot walk in the park after your first viewing of Reservoir Dogs.  The price of these wines reflect the labor it takes to produce them.  Bovee and I did a whole show on the wonders of Valpolicella and the many style of wine they can create.

This Ripasso style should be used with pretty hearty and intensely flavored foods.  It’s also perfect for the cold night on the bear skin rug with your loved one.
