Folonari Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso NV

Member Review by Erik Haensel:

Takes a little breathing, say 45 minutes to an hour to reach its full potential but wow....the most potent $20 (CAN) bottle I have had in as long as I can remember. Its all pomegranate on the nose, hits like biting into the fruit, then falls with a light but rich body of under-ripe plum, almond, and yes more pomegranate. Delicately balanced with little to no acidity and almost devoid of bitterness. We drank this beauty with only the sunset as accompaniment, its low acidity and subtle flavor would be easily overpowered by rich food.

The Folonari family had a vision. From the very beginning, the founders wanted to create wines accessible to everyday tables.

A bottle from the Folonari winery made on one day was certain to be just as excellent as a bottle produced the next, or in a few weeks, or in a few months. This philosophy of bringing exceptional wines to everyday occasions continues to guide Folonari today. Read less

Two glasses



Tasting Notes:

From the famous Valpolicella wine region of Northern Italy, second only to the Chianti region for red wine production. Medium-bodied with flavors of plums and cherries.
