The 2008 Pasqua Black Label Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso is light to medium bodied, with integrated notes of strawberry, raspberry, cedar, liquorice and vanilla notes. Tannins are refined (decant for 30 to 60 min), acidity is refreshing and the finish is medium. Drink now to 2014. My impression: NICE, 88.5 pts - nice wine, but you will not find the typical Ripasso here. Tasted Apr/11.
