Le Ragose Valpolicella Ripasso 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark cherry fruit greets the nose along with layers of spicy, earthy, slightly oaky, and decidedly medicinal herbal aromas that have a slight beet root edge to them. Bright acids on entry promise a fresh wie though this immediately reveals a bit of a meaty palate rich with dark cherry fruit, rose petals, and then masses of minerally, roasted meat and beet root flavors on the palate. The tannins poke through on the finish and are a bit dry here, though there is enough bay leaf, mineral, and red fruit flavors to almost keep them covered through the long finish. 89pts

Le Ragose is located in the town of Negrar on the historic hills of Valpolicella. After years of lying abandoned, the 70 acre estate was in 1969 by Arnaldo Galli, an enologist, and his wife Marta Bortoletto. Together with their children, Paolo and Marco, they have striven to respect the traditions of this ancient zone while carefully introducing modern technology both in the vineyard and in the cellars. They have been slowly increasing the types of varietals they plant with the precise scope of improving the sector of the "classic" wines and, at the same time, satisfying the evolving and changing tastes of the consumer … Today there are 40 acres of vineyard which lie above the notorious winter fogs. The terrain is particularly suited for vine growing and the climate is idea for the "appassimento" (drying) of the grapes. The Galli family is involved in all phases of the production from the vineyard to the marketing of the finished wines. Their wines, which have drawn much attention in the press, are produced exclusively by the grapes grown at Le Ragose and always with the focus on quality and not on quantity. … Today there are 40 acres of vineyard which lie above the notorious winter fogs.
