Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso DOC 2016
Our Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore is born from the refermentation of Valpolicella wine on the marcs of Amarone. After Amarone’s fermentation, the wine is separated from the marcs, which still contain substances that can release fragrances and aromas. Valpolicella wine is then left in contact with the marcs of the Amarone wine for ca. 5 days, thus triggering a new fermentation that enriches the structure of the wine and gives it withering notes that characterize it strongly. The result is a structured wine that is very balanced in taste, accompanied to the nose
by slight hints of ripe and dried fruit that during aging evolve, increasing complexity.
