Valpolicella Ripasso

Classico Superiore

The step-brother of Amarone, this wine displays excellent structure and intense colour. It presents fruity notes – cherry first and foremost – which blend with deliciously spicy aromas. Strongly tannic and slightly sharp, it recalls the powerful character of Amarone without losing its softness and drinkability. Recommended as a pairing for white meats and cheeses as well as the traditional pairing of grilled red meats.

How it's made
The ‘Ripasso’ method is a tradition which is celebrated every year; Valpolicella wine is ‘passed over’ the skins of the grapes already used for Amarone while they are still warm and full of sugars. The first step is manual harvesting and collection in special boxes which are left in the drying shed for 3 months, then the grapes become a basic Valpolicella which is left in contact with the Amarone skins for a few days. During this time, a second fermentation takes place. The last step is aging in French oak barrels for 12 months.
