9th June 2011: Italy Valpolicella by Liam Campbell, Wine Editor.
Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2007 by Musella 13.5% [O’Brien’s]
Lovely perfume of French oak’s vanilla and nutmeg with ripe cherries. Really delicious and richly flavoured with spiced fruitcake. Full-bodied and a long warming and spicy finish. Almost a meal in itself. Try with a stir fry of chilli peppers and strips of steak.
