Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore 'Ripassa'

2019 | Red Wine

Case Size: 6
Price Per Bottle: £23.57
All prices include VAT

A velvety and harmonius red with a good structure, offering fine tannins and a pleasing palate of plump cherry, dried fig, espresso creme and baking spices. Juicy and well-balanced.

As soon as the dried grapes for the Amarone are fermented, selected batches of Valpolicella wine are re-passed in barrels, thus starting a second fermentation that slightly increases the alcohol content and gives the wine deeper colour, increased extract, and more complex aromas. Ripassa is refined in tank for six months and then aged in French Allier tonneaux for eighteen months. The wine spends an additional six months in bottle before it is released.

  • This is my favourite everyday red, from a great producer. The new grape pressing added to the Amazon lees produces a full-bodied and well-balanced wine.
