"A Valpolicella Ripasso that effortlessly combines ripeness and elegance. Fine blackberries, ripe plums and cocoa powder on the nose. The bright acidity and the supple tannins are beautifully integrated on the palate. Long and silky, dry finish."
- James Suckling
"Loaded with aromatic herb and spiced orange notes that accent the baked black cherry and plum fruit, this expressive red is medium- to full-bodied and lightly chewy, with sage, rosemary and smoke details wafting on the finish. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Rossignola."
- Wine Spectator
"The 2016 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Capitel San Rocco shows great dark fruit intensity, spread over a rich mid-weight style. I found the breezes of rosemary essence and eucalyptus oil to be very distinctive and nice. It's the perfect choice for roasted lamb with garlic and rosemary potatoes, and it's a great value too, thanks to the 100,000 bottles made. This wine was first produced in 1976, and the Tedeschi family was among the first to use the Ripasso method in Valpolicella in its commercial winemaking."
