The Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore is characterized by its ruby red color. Floral notes of violets and a light spiciness rise to the nose. The wine is full, velvety, full-bodied, and persistent on the palate. The Ripasso has an excellent balance between the tannins and the minerality.

Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore

After a meticulous grape selection by hand, the grapes are placed in a room specially built to let them dry under natural conditions for 2 to 3 weeks. Later on, the dried grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed.
The Ripasso wine undergoes a particular fermentation process: the whole and gently pressed Ripasso grapes are placed on top of the unpressed, dried grape skins from the previous Amarone production.
This contact between those two mashes gives the Ripasso its excellent balance between tannins and minerality and its intense ruby-red color. The refinement of the wine follows with the aging in French oak barrels.
The winemaker decides how long the wine should age in the bottle, depending on each vintage.
