Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso 2016 Novaia red wine

Deep ruby ​​red color.

The nose has intense aromas of cherry jam, and berries. Follow the sweet spices and notes, which evoke a soft background. Even traces of roots increase complexity and elegance. Overall, the aromas are well distinguishable and very pleasant.

On the palate it has considerable softness, expressed by the pseudo heat of alcohol, and the creaminess of glycerine. For the hardness we can say of all the tannins, mature and evolved, of a good minerality synthesized by the volcanic soil, and of a good acidity. The synthesis is a wine of body and structure, endowed with good harmony. In the retro olfation aromas of ripe fruit come to the nose, which persist for a long time.

Among the Valpolicella review, that of Novaia, stands out for its refinement and elegance.
