Wine SpectatorThis is firmer than some of its counterparts, as fine-grained tannins frame the hints of chocolate shavings, cedar and sage, with flavors of dried cherry and currant. Tangy acidity and light tannins show on the lingering, smoky finish. Drink now through 2017. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 8,000 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateSanti's 2008 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso Solane is a huge overachiever for the money. A delicious, feminine Valpolicella, the Solane offers up generous red berries, crushed flowers, spices and licorice. To be sure, this is one of the more understated Ripassos readers will come across, but the wine's balance and sense of harmony are beyond reproach. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
