This is a big Ripasso with masculine tannins. It's very well made and provides plenty of fruit/wood/herb and tobacco notes. It's firm, so let it breath for an hour. Great buy!

Medium bodied with a reasonable finish. The wine had a slight pepper note, but lacked the strong undertones I would expect from a Ripasso. Maybe it wasn't open for long enough?
