  • Score: 91 Vintage 2017 Wine and Spirits This ripasso, from a vineyard in Fumane, offers saturating flavors of red and black cherry laced with notes of subtle spice and almond paste. The tannins are velvety, and a hint of underbrush gives an earthy balance to the bright fruit tones. It shows typical ripasso richness yet comes across as vinous and balanced, a wine for the main course rather than for dessert. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media The 2017 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore I Progni is bright and fruit-forward with pretty flowery perfumes and hints of exotic spice. The textures are silky-smooth, casting notes of ripe blackberry and cherry across a medium-bodied frame. There’s a nice symmetry here, finishing fresh and crisp with violet florals and a hint of rounded tannins. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate This wine does not see appassimento, but like all Ripasso, the 2016 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore I Progni is refermented on the air-dried skins left over from Amarone. The blend is 70% Corvina and Corvinone, with 30% Rondinella and Oseleta. It undergoes 18 months of aging in barrique and Slavonian oak. This is a terrific wine to pair with your favorite hamburger dressed with smoky barbecue sauce, or prime ribs, or else Santa Maria tri-tip. In other words, it's a great meat wine. Some 40,000 bottles were produced. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast Mature dark-skinned berry, tobacco and leather aromas shape the nose. The solid palate offers blackberry jam, clove and vanilla alongside smooth tannins. Enjoy through 2023. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
