Ripasso is an unique wine in the world, obtained with the refermentation in wine tanks, method used only in Valpolicella. In March the fresh wine lies on the Amarone pomace just racked off: here takes place the secondary fermentation (refermentation). In order to enhance the quality of the Valpolicella Ripasso, the production disciplinary provides for the lying in the fresh young wine of a percentage by volume of Amarone wine, along with its pomace.
This contribution confers structure and complexity to Ripasso.
After different processing stages, the wine starts its aging phase in small/ medium-sized barrel and then refines in bottle for no less than 3 months.
A full red ruby colour, with scents of violet, cherry, strawberry, blackberry and a pleasant balsamic note. The palate, consistent with the fragrances, gives a rounded perception, enriched by supple tannins and an acid elegant note, while in the aftertaste arises a hint of liquorice.
