Ripasso Camp

Cheap little ripasso tonight off a list at an Italian resty, should have got the feudi but no. Oak-ridden and ripe, sweet reduction, banana and Butterfinger, sage and soil a nice nose but flabby and dull. In the mouth, a great crowd-pleaser for americans raised on Tuscans that are super. A little bitter green soaks in after the rich entry, and it’s a solid wine, just boring and sweet and smooth and I need some acid.
