Producing a Ripasso in the traditional way requires a first fermentation of dried Amarone grapes and then a second fermentation of a young Valpolicella on the skins of Amarone grapes. The Ripasso is aged for 10 months in oak barrels for 80% and for 20% in stainless steel tanks before being bottled.


Tasting notes

On the nose, notes of cherries and red fruits, mineral and slightly spicy. A wine of great complexity, perfectly balanced, with smooth tannins.

 

Serve between 16 and 18 degrees with grilled meats and cheese.
