Product Description

WS 89 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2009 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ca del Laito is an irresistibly thick and densely concentrated wine that is immensely soft and pleasurable in the mouth. It imparts dark berry, tar, black licorice, spice, brown sugar and leather. The blend is 60% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella and 10% Molinara and the wine ages 30 months in traditional botte grande. The wine wraps thickly over the palate. Drink 2014-2018.

According to Wine Spectator - A high-toned nose leads to subtle candied cherry, crème de cassis and plum brandy fruit, underscored by graphite-tinged mineral, dark chocolate shavings and dried herb notes. Elegant and lightly tangy. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases imported.

When Veneto legend Giuseppe Quintarelli was asked years ago to name the region’s next superstar, he didn’t hesitate: Tommaso Bussola. His prediction was realized in 1999 when Tommaso’s 1995’s were released. Among the countless accolades he received, Gambero Rosso gave him the first of many Tre Bicchieris (highest wine rating). Despite being the estate’s standard wines, the Ca’del Laito selections are near the summit of the Valpolicella pyramid. Only estate fruit is used, including declassified wine from top sites like Alto, Soto el Barbi, Casali & Ca’del Laito. The Valpolicella is made in a bold, Ripasso style that highlights the quality of Tommaso’s raw materials. 14% ABV.
