Description

Our Valpolicella Ripasso is born from the refermentation of Valpolicella wine on the marcs of Amarone della Valpolicella. After fermentation, Amarone wine is separated from its marcs, which still contain substances that can release fragrances and aromas. Valpolicella wine is then left in contact with Amarone della Valpolicella marcs for ca. 5 days, thus triggering a new fermentation that enriches the structure of the wine and characterizes it with drying notes. 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 evolve during aging, increasing complexity.
