Monte del Frà Valpolicella Ripasso


The Monte del Fra Valpolicella Classico appears deep ruby red with ripe red fruit accompanied with spice and earthiness on the nose. The palate displays delicious cherry and plum fruit, locked with sweet liquorice and warm cinnamon, finishing full, with velvety soft tannins and spice. Excellent wine that will get better and better, allow to breathe, even decant and would be best served with roasts, stews, braised meats and strong cheese.
