Made by re-fermenting the young Valpolicella on the skins of the grapes used to produce the Amarone. This Ripasso shows intense ruby red with hints of violet. On the nose, it is and intense and fine wine, with a bouquet of cherries and spices, followed by a warm, full bodied and velvety palate with notes of dried fruits.
"Ripasso doesn’t get much better than this highly polished example. Here, Valpolicella Classico is re-fermented on the lees of recioto (rather than Amarone) and the extra sweetness and softness which that brings to the finished wine really suits the ripasso style. It has sweet and sumptuous fruit with a velvety texture and ripe, round tannins. Extremely persuasive and already drinking well." 92 points (2017 vintage), Decanter
