Bixio offers a tight, compact expression of Amarone that seems bursting at the seams with fresh fruit, cherry and berry aromas. The wine is syrupy and thick in the mouth with a refreshing touch of acidity at the close.
Rather than your standard red cherry flavors, this unique Ripasso focuses on aromas of sweet cola, jasmine tea, bee’s wax and white mineral. The wine has a good balance of acidity and structure and would pair well with pasta or meat dishes.
Sweet jasmine and floral aromas make this Soave Classico Superiore (which sees three months in large oak casks) a perfect companion to Thai noodles with fragrant basil. The wine ends with a soft note of honey and peach.
A medium-weight wine, with flavors of dried fruit and coffee. Pleasant cherry and prune aromas also hint at lactic notes, while modest tannins and a slight chalkiness accent the finish.
The wine opens with a luminous ruby color and delivers good density and extraction overall. The nose, however, is slightly confused because of the contrasting aromas of red apple, old oak barrel and earth. Ultimately it performs better in the mouth than it does on the nose.
Brambly wood and forest floor open the bouquet of this crisp Ripasso that is also characterized by aromas of dried rosemary, cola and cassis. A slightly bitter finish would pair with cheese appetizers or creamy pasta.
