    "The 2006 Valpolicella Classico Ripassa reveals lovely clarity and precision in its perfumed dark fruit. This vibrant, poised Valpolicella offers tons of depth and a long, refreshing finish. Zenato's Valpolicella is made from 80% Corvina, 10% Sangiovese and 10% Rondinella, and is aged in small French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2014."
