Dunnes - Valpolicella Ripasso - Colognola Al Colli

I was in Dunnes in Ballyogan this weekend and it was my only opportunity to buy wine, otherwise I wouldn't have been buying wine there as there is a half decent Molloys around the corner.

Anyhoo, long story short, I bought two bottles new to me, a Valpolicella Ripasso (pictured) and an unbranded Cotes du Rhone.

Name: Valpolicella Ripasso - Colognola Al Colli
Year: 2006
Price: €10-99
Notes: This was an OK wine. Tasted much younger and sharper than the Tesco Ripasso from last week. Not much in the way of depth or balance but with some decent dark fruit.
Rating: 5/10

Note: The Cotes Du Rhone was poor, drinkable but poor. 4/10
