Made In: Veneto, Italy
The 2016 vintage of Storia Antica (translates to ancient history) is a great value Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore from the Veneto wine region, with rich dark fruit, smoky and toasty on the palate. Generous oak is well woven with rich black fruit, mocha and dark chocolate. Savoury, dark and delicious with full-bodied weight and incredible concentration of flavour. Long finish. Great wine. Well-structured and balanced with supple tannins, this is a comfort wine and a perfect pairing to slow-braised beef ribs and rich meat dishes. Drink: 2018-2024. Score - 91.
