This wine is a blend of 80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, and 10% Sangiovese. As soon as the dried grapes for the Amarone are fermented, selected batches of Valpolicella wine are “re-passed” over the Amarone’s lees, thus starting a second fermentation that slightly increases the alcohol content and gives the wine deeper color, increased extract, and more complex aromas. Ripassa is refined in tank for six months and then aged in French allier tonneaux for eighteen months. The wine spends an additional six months in bottle before it is released.
Colour: deep ruby red.Bouquet: intense, elegant and persistent.Palate: harmonious and velvety, with a good structure.
excellent companion to game dishes, grilled meat and roasts, salami and aged cheeses
