Cesari Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Bosan
Wine Advocate 91 points (Dec 2014)
Made with 80% Corvina and 20% Rondinella, the 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Bosan is a delightful treat. Bosan is regularly one of my favorite Ripasso wines. What sets it apart is the purity and the intensity of the bouquet. The style is bold and the oak tones (the wine sees 12 months in barrique with an additional six months in botte grande) are evident but well-folded within the greater texture of the wine. A wine of this intensity could pair with breaded veal chops or roast beef.
Wine maker notes
Located in the Illasi Valley of the Valpolicella region, Cesari’s Bosan vineyard is a densely planted vineyard featuring alluvial, tuffaceous soil with a clayey consistency. Cesari Bosan Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore is a limited production, single-vineyard wine that is fermented in stainless steel and then refermented on the grapes’ dried skins (“the Ripasso technique”). The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation, followed by aging in French oak casks for 12 months, oak barrels for 6 months, and bottle for 8 months. Full-bodied with a velvety finish, this wine has a complex bouquet of red fruits and spicy cherries. Enjoy this wine with grilled meats, game, stews, and fully-flavored risottos.
