"Ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors mix with himts of rose petal, pekoe tea and dried herbs in this velvety red, which balances a pleasant sappy quality with tangy acidity, showing chewing tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 1,200 cases imported. "

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2008 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Capitel San Rocco possesses a touch more sweetness and roundness than the Capitel dei Nicalo tasted alongside it. Fragrant dark cherries, tobacco, earthiness and rosemary are some of the nuances that linger on the close. The finish retains an element of vibrancy and freshness that is quite attractive. Anticipated maturity: 20112014."

"Tedeschi presents a beautifully balanced Ripasso with a successful contrast between elegance and power. The aromas here recall mature fruit, spice, leather and Spanish cedar and the wine offers a long, thick and soft finish."
