Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore Doc
Our Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore is a product of the peculiar technique of “Ripasso”: the Valpolicella wine is obtained from the vinification of freshly picked grapes.
In February, after pressing the dried grapes for Amarone, we use the marc leftover to start a second fermentation of Valpolicella; thus, Ripasso, which means “re-pass”.
The result is an inimitable mixture of fresh aromas of red grapes, ripered fruits and fine spicy notes of Amarone. Its complex taste has character, pleasantness, softness and balance.
You can store this wine for 10-12 years in a cool (15° C) and humid place, with no direct sunlight. We suggest you to open the bottle at least half an hour before serving it, at a temperature of 15° C.
