Ilaria de Nardi (formerly Accordini) 2018 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore
750 ml, 70% Corvina/Corvinoni, 30% Rondinella
This winery has gone through a couple of name changes. Illaria Accordini now calls her winery "Illaria de Nardi"
A dark, deep Valpolicella, very expressive, showing brambly blackberry, juicy kirsch and black licorice, with lots of sandalwood, cedar and spice notes. Fine-grained tannins are lightly chewy on the lingering, spiced finish.
