File this one under bold & brooding, this Ripasso is the perfect remedy for cold winter nights. Aromas of red plums, cherry compote, sandalwood, leather, licorice and baking spices evolve from the glass. The palate is lush and smooth with a concentrated texture that descends towards a sappy, spicy and savory finish. Perfect for beef stews, and curries though smooth enough to enjoy on its own.

Tenuta Sant'Antonio's Monti Garbi is a versatile wine that falls in between the winery's Nanfrè Valpolicella and its Amarones in style. Ripasso is a traditional and fairly unique style of wine in which standard Valpolicella wine has undergone a second fermentation in the presence of pressed Amarone grape skins, which adds body and complexity.

Monti Garbi starts with superiore-level grapes, which results in an even more robust wine. The name Monti Garbi comes from a vineyard in Mezzane di Sotto in the eastern part of Valpolicella. Monti means "hills," and Garbi is Venetian dialect for "rugged, arid, and poor," which describes the poor calcareous and chalky soil of the vineyard.
