Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore, 2009, Sartori

Took the train to Venice and spent the day unpacking and cleaning and shopping for my rented flat in Dorsoduro. I love it here. It has a private, quiet garden and is tucked behind the hustle and bustle. I come as often as I can…and I try to write, but I end up walking the streets. The owner always leaves a few bottles of wine in his drinks cupboard and you are allowed to help yourself as long as you replace it for the next person. So I made myself a dinner of burrata and plum tomatoes, steamed artichoke hearts in vinaigrette and  a veal chop with a mushroom and cream sauce and opened a 2009 Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore from Sartori. It was boring and lacking any personality, but it kept me company well enough. Little body or texture for a Ripasso, and the short finish was light, dusty and dry. I went for a walk to St Mark’s Square to say my “hello” to the city and had a spritz while watching the tourists dance to the orchestras.
