Back to what I had expected from this vintage. Nice, lightly smoked, good complexity. Medium finish.

Beautiful lavender-eggplant dark purple color. Deep, full and rich, but not peppery. Well balanced and interesting characteristics. A favorite.

Slightly more acidic and peppery than I recall from my last bottle. Tight at first. Significantly improved +1 hour decanted.

Currently my favorite moderate priced wine. Deep maroon color. Nice berry flavors but not too much. From reading, the Ripasso is produced by aging the corvina grapes on top of already pressed amarone pomaces. The result is a bold but very drinkable, enrichened wine blending some of the traits of amarone (at a significant cost savings to amarone). Started with 3 bottles and have just added several more and have also ordered an Amarone and Recioto to compare.

Very good Ripasso ! Have never had wines from Bennati before, but now I know this small producer... Very dark beautiful color, outstanding nose and taste of dried cherries, bitter chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Aftertaste is medium length....

Ridiculous quality for under $20, this wine will crush many low-end amarone. From a small producer, imported by Regional Imports in Cincinnati, Ohio. Aromas that leap out and grab you, musky gardenia, dried cherry, chocolate ganache, pipe tobacco. Palate is dense and saturated but hails towards the traditional style with lots of bitter chocolate and dried cherry. Flavors of walnut skin, berry compote, and dried flowers swirl and evolve with air, finish is long and firm, with amaro like bitterness. Pick this up for sure, if you can find it. $18.99 The Party Source

Dark garnet. Nose of cherry, barnyard and licorice. Sweet ripe palate of cherry and raspberry with vibrant acidity, good length and minimal tannins. Very good quaffer and excellent QPR.
