Tommaso Bussola Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ca’ del Laito 2018
Bold, rich, and surprisingly complex, the 2018 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ca’ del Laito explodes with juicy cherries and berries, balsamic herbs, underbrush, warm earth, and sprinklings of potpourri and cocoa. A ripasso wine, this Valpolicella “passes” through the lees of the estate’s classic Amarone, adding intensity, polish, and finesse. Though the grapes for this wine come from a number of vineyards, it gets its name from the Ca’ del Laito vineyard, which sits on a ridge directly above Quintarelli. An absolute bang for the buck!
