Quite a light ripasso, this charming, easy-drinking, medium-bodied effort; dominant cinnamon and other baking-spice notes, supported by dense, flavourful fruit, mostly raspberry, lurking unobtrusively and providing lift; there's dried-fruit in here as well, but there isn't the overwhelming raisin and prune character that, for better or worse, defines other ripassos; nothing complicated, nothing brooding, but solid.
