Wine of the Week for April 11, 2011

Ca' De Riva Valpolicella Ripasso 2008 - $13.95
Style: R3

Italy: Veneto
The nose here is very full, with aromas of roses, dark cherries, all-spice and vanilla. Quite big and juicy, showing vanilla, dark berries, solid tannins, and a pleasantly bitter close. Big and long, it's scrumptious and a worthy addition to your table or cellar. Try with  roast beast, duck, or hard cheeses. (LCBO 174482)
Currently 123 LCBO stores have 6 or more bottles (according to on-line database)
