Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso
GOLD MEDAL Sommelier Wine Awards 2014 - Great value for money
A dry, full-bodied red with a deep and bright ruby red colour. The nose
shows the characteristic scent of black cherries and ripe berries with
a hint of vanilla and cloves from the oak aging. The palate is ripe and
fruity with soft tannins and a lingering finish.
In March following the harvest, the new vintage of Valpolicella Superiore
wine is macerated with the skins remaining from the production of
Amarone. This is done according to the ancient Veronese technique of
"ripasso" , which increases the alcohol and enriches the structure of the
Valpolicella. It is then aged 12 months in oak barrels to develop further
its characteristics. The wine then benefits fro m a few months bottle aging.
Grown inse lected hillside sites of the Valpolicella area North of the city
