Buglioni "L'Imperfetto" Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso 2014

90 Our Score
(8/2018) The Amarone and Valpolicella Ripasso bottlings from Buglioni have been some of the finest we have ever featured. We were recently presented their 2014 Valpolicella Classico, labeled "L'Imperfetto." We loved it so much that we had to squeeze it in one day before going to press on our August newsletter. What's neat about this bottling is that, even though it's not Ripasso, a portion of the grapes are left out to dry, imparting a touch of the Ripasso and Amarone signature style. Prior to release, the wine saw 12 months aging in stainless steel followed by six months in barrel. This treatment has allowed the freshness of the delicious ripe fruit to be preserved while softening the palate and adding wonderful complex nuances of baking spice, leather and both red and black licorice on the finish. This full and generous red should be enjoyed with hearty pasta dishes and hard cheeses. Bravo!

Remo Farina Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso 2016

90 Our Score
(1/2019) Blending 50% Corvina with Rondinella, Corvinone, Oseleta and Rondinella, this traditional red from the Veneto is well-balanced with clean fruit flavors of cherry and raspberry complemented by subtle spices and a hint of licorice. A Valpolicella Rispasso for under twenty bucks that is this full, rich and opulent is really tough to come by. This delicious offering from Rema Farina is a smokin' hot buy!
