    The 2017 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso Ca' del Laito impresses with its lift and grave, as autumnal spiced cherry-berry fruits are complemented by hints of sweet oak. This is silky and elegant with ripe red and black berries that coast along a vibrant core of acids, as hints of dark chocolate and clove come forward toward the close. It's long yet very soft and nuanced through the finalte, leaving just a hint of lavender to linger. This is a balanced effort for the vineyard, yet I find myself craving more depth.
